What will I learn?

As a Communication and Journalism major, you will work with our experienced teacher-scholars in small group settings in the classroom, studio and field. Your professors care deeply about your personal growth and career development. They are eager to work with you to develop your portfolio for the emerging global job market and graduate school, as you take classes in your respective major—Global & Cultural Communication, Journalism, or Media/Film.

Our program is tailored to your goals. You'll start by taking two foundation courses that focus on effective speaking, concise writing, and critical thinking. Then you’ll enter the experiential phase, where you’ll pinpoint a major to gain specific knowledge and hands-on experience. You’ll work with mentors who are thought influencers in the field—the Suffolk classroom and the city beyond is your oyster.

Media & Film

Media and film are dynamic concepts that are constantly evolving; therefore, students need to prepare themselves to be adaptable creators in the industries. To that end, the major guides students through considerations of both practical and critical nature to ensure that students learn how the two areas exist with mutual benefit to one another. Upon graduation, students are prepared for both practical work in the industry and graduate studies in film or media theory or a specialized production area.

Internships are highly encouraged, and students regularly intern at production and post production houses in the city and Boston metro area, as well as TV stations, such as PBS. Many also intern on movie sets, as Hollywood productions regularly shoot in the city.
