This major is a hybrid major drawn from the art and communication disciplines. It 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 multimedia/design major would prepare students for careers in the aesthetic aspects of organizations (graphic design, desktop publishing, video production, web page design, photography) as well as the design and production of corporate publications (magazines, newsletters and annual reports). First year graduates report salaries ranging from $15,000-30,000*.
*Salaries are ranges reported by 2002 Mount Mercy graduates.
