Enrollment Services

Multimedia Studies

Bachelor of Science (BS) in Multimedia Studies

The Bachelor of Science with a Major in Multimedia Studies degree is offered through the MSU Art Department in tandem with the Communication Arts Department. It is an extensive media experience that equips you to fluently author, design and manage content in an array of media. The interdisciplinary degree includes courses from five major study areas: Art (graphic design and photography), Communication (broadcasting), English, Music and Business.

Studying art at MSU is a meaningful and rewarding creative experience, during which you will build confidence with technique, concept, design, and aesthetic judgment. The MSU Art Department is small enough to foster strong student mentoring and large enough to attract quality professors who are engaged in outstanding research.
