Integrated Media

The integrated media program gives students the chance to become literate in a number of digital media contexts. From social to streaming media, students learn how to communicate with today's latest tools. The cornerstone of the integrated media major is using digital multimedia to tell compelling stories and use technology to engage with the world around them. Students study the principles and tools of interactive design, development and distribution to create projects that have the potential to reach global audiences.

Internships

Internships with local media and communications outlets also are a key component of study. Examples include KATU-TV in Portland, Portland independent filmmakers, a National Guard newspaper and Voltage Pictures in Hollywood, producers of the academy award-winning film "The Hurt Locker." This broad-based approach allows graduates to gravitate to a variety of fields from television and newspapers to web design and marketing.
