Communication, Media & Journalism (CMJ)
The Communication, Media & Journalism Department offers a Bachelor of Science in Film & Digital Media and a Bachelor of Arts in Communication with three concentrations: Organizational Leadership, Multimedia Journalism, and Public Relations. The department also offers Associate of Arts degrees in core curriculum with pathway courses in Communication, Media Studies, and Journalism, each of which is designed to prepare students to enter one of the department's bachelor's programs. CMJ's minors in Journalism, Film Production, Public Relations, and Communication complement the University of North Georgia's (UNG) many other majors. All of our degrees provide a strong interdisciplinary grounding in the liberal arts and prepare students for careers in digital media production, filmmaking, journalism, public relations, organizational leadership or other communication-related professions.
The department supports a number of student organizations and events that provide opportunities for personal and professional growth, including our internationally competitive Debate, Forensics, Interpretation Team, the Spanish-Speaking Debate Tournament, The Vanguard student news organization, decibel radio, and the Student Film Association.
