Focus on the Media Career of Your Choice
We offer both a B.A. in Communication and a B.S in Communication, which teaches highly sought-after production skills. Each degree has its own concentrations so that you can focus on the media career of your choice:
Laurel Vlock Center for Convergent Media
The University of New Haven's Laurel Vlock Center for Convergent Media is a key resource for Communication students. The Center allows students to combine the technologies that integrate radio, television, newspapers and the Internet. Students also learn to write, plan production, edit video, and post their mixed media to the Internet. With the training and education of this newest technology, our students will be well-prepared as professionals in communication offices and newsrooms.
The Vlock Center uses software such as Avid Media Composer, EP Movie Magic Scheduling 6, Adobe Creative Suite 6, Adobe After Effects, Audacity and Apple Final Cut Pro.
