So you’re thinking about getting into television, radio, or film? Or maybe you want to work in multimedia or use technology in ways no one has thought of yet. Whatever the medium, professionals in the field of digital media play major roles in shaping the way we view the world.
Meet Michael Stearns, Class of '18
After graduating with majors in advertising and digital media, Michael is now a videographer at Generac on their marketing teams.
Shape the way we view the world.
Digital Media students will develop skills in video, audio, film, and the web. Career opportunities exist in a number of fields, including radio, television, film, theatre, corporate video, public broadcasting, social media, and emerging media industries. The major’s liberal arts emphasis will give students the education to thrive in and adapt to this era of convergence and competition.
Shoot video, host your own radio show, produce television shows and films—or use media technology in your own, original way. Campus radio, television, and film production units are entirely student-run.
Study in a major media market.
Direct your studies into a career in producing, writing, directing, programming, media management, promotion, or audience research. Milwaukee is a top-35 market—small enough to get your foot in the door, big enough to prepare you for any media market in the country.
Access the technology.
Digital Media students have access to Johnston Hall’s recently renovated television and audio studios, video editing suites, industry standard creative software, and professional production equipment.
At the completion of the Digital Media major, the graduate is able to:
- Apply theory and technique to produce professional quality media.
- Illustrate the ethical, social, historical, and legal implications of digital media.
- Use theory and research to evaluate digital media messages.
