The global reach, interactivity, and convergence of digital communications and other media create new opportunities and challenges for the fields of communication, advertising, journalism, and digital media. Increasing brand awareness in a global market, building and managing reputation across social media, deciphering fact from fiction and reporting accurate information, and communicating to a generation that is media-perceptive and design-savvy–these are the hurdles creative professionals need to soar over. Graduates of RIT’s communications and digital media programs are sought-after because they have the skills, practical experience, and creativity to advance an organization’s goals.
