About the College
We look forward to welcoming the students who will join us in fall 2015 as we open CU-Boulder’s groundbreaking new College of Media, Communication and Information.
The college comes at a time of breathtaking change in the ways people communicate and the technology they use to do it. This new era offers exciting opportunities for people with the skills and the intellectual insights to communicate on today’s many media platforms to a wide variety of audiences.
Every undergraduate CMCI student will begin with a common set of classes to establish a foundation in humanities, sciences and technology. From there, we offer a choice of six bachelor’s degrees: Strategic Communication (Department of Advertising, Public Relations and Media Design); Communication; Media Production (Department of Critical Media Practices); Information Science; Journalism; and Media Studies. Students will produce content for a variety of media platforms, work with and analyze computer-generated data, and study media, communication and information in terms of their history and impact on society.
Each of the academic departments also offers a full set of graduate degrees, and the college is home to a graduate program in Intermedia Art, Writing and Performance.
The CMCI experience, though, goes beyond traditional academic majors and degrees. Because today’s media landscape requires mastery of many different skills, we’ve created a network in which departments share curriculum and faculty so students can easily enhance their expertise in closely related fields.
Both in and out of the classroom, CMCI students will gain hands-on experience. They’ll take intensive skills workshops, design projects for real-world clients and benefit from hundreds of internship opportunities.
Connect with the future and make it yours at CMCI.
