This major is designed to not only provide students with the competencies to understand the role of communication in organizations, groups and activities, but also to give students a firm grounding in the application of new and emerging technologies. 

The media track emphasizes communication in a variety of media modes, including publication design, web site development, computer video production, and photography. Objectives for this major include for students to interpret the process of communication and employ communication in real-world practice as they strategically and competently apply verbal or media skills.

Communication students are encouraged to join the Communication club, FACE, or the Mount Mercy Times. Both are great opportunities to gain invaluable experience while at Mount Mercy.
