The Department of Communications and New Media advances the global knowledge-based economy through teaching, research and service to society. Teaching and research are informed by social, cultural, philosophical, economic, industry, and regulatory perspectives. CNM offers students a foundation for careers in communication management, new media design, policy and research.


The Department of Communications and New Media will be a global leader in interdisciplinary education and research in the fields of communications and new media. This integrated approach, reflecting global trends in media convergence, will attract top students and faculty not only from social sciences, arts and humanities, but also from computer science, engineering, design and management. CNM also will leverage its strategic location to bring Asian perspectives into new media studies.
