Media, Journalism & Digital Arts

Student presenting at Symposium 2016On Wednesday, April 24, 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: the impacts of video game live streaming, the environmental impact of thrift shopping, fantasy sports and the benefits of bringing dogs to work.
