With this online digital media communications degree, you will benefit from the flexibility found with a 100% online degree that also connects you with local media owners seeking successors while gaining the tools needed to be a successful media owner.  Plus, you have the option of completing a Publisher Path track, featuring hands-on research immersion into news organizations and strategies for real-world media publications.
