Media, Journalism & Digital Arts

Student presenting at Symposium 2016On Wednesday, April 25, from 4 to 6 p.m. in Dion Family Student Center's Roy Event Room, Senior Media Studies, Journalism and Digital Arts majors will display and explain their culminating projects - from documentary films to books and websites. They cover a wide range of topics, to put it mildly. Just a few examples: state sanitation; how digital media is shaping language; the gender gap in STEM; the art of activism; and the stories of sub-Saharan immigrants.
