The WestConn communication department has introduced a new Bachelor of Arts in Media Arts program offering concentrations in media production and media studies. The Media Arts program is designed to encourage students to explore diverse areas of the media — film, television, radio, journalism and photography — from the perspective of a critic or producer.  The curriculum seeks to develop students’ communication skills through courses in writing, production and media performance, and to cultivate students’ skills in critical thinking through classes exploring communication theory, the history of the media and the contemporary relationship between the media and society.
