Department of Communication & New Media

Welcome to the Department of Communications and New Media

The Communication & New Media Department offers students countless opportunities to develop their job portfolios, and a curriculum taught by faculty members with real-world experience in fields such as photography, public relations, journalism and graphic design. Whether capturing images of campus life as a member of the student photo team, producing and starring in a university news web show viewed by all students or reporting Gardner-Webb news for the online newspaper GWU-Today.com, you can apply concepts from class to the career you seek after graduation. The Department of Communication & New Media offers two majors with several different concentrations: Communication Studies with concentrations in Graphic Design, Video/Film, Photography, and Public Relations and Journalism with concentrations in News-Editorial (print and web), Photojournalism (still, video, and multimedia), and Broadcast (in front of the camera).
