Offered jointly by the International Affairs Program, the College of Arts and Sciences, and Journalism & Mass Communication
Today’s Journalism and International Affairs majors are entering an increasingly globalized, technology-focused workforce. Organizing your electives into a coherent interdisciplinary certificate prepares you for job opportunities emerging in between the traditional fields of media and international studies. The undergraduate Certificate in International Media (IMC) is designed to give students a strong conceptual understanding of both communication media and international politics.
The IMC allows students majoring in International Affairs at the University of Colorado (CU) to explore careers in international reporting, advertising, and entertainment, while Journalism majors will acquire the context and perspective necessary to work in global and international jobs.
This Certificate program is jointly administered by International Affairs in the College of Arts and Sciences and Journalism and Mass Communication at CU Boulder. The IMC selection committee will consist of the co-directors of the certificate from IAFS and JOUR.
***IM Certificate Fall advising event will be held on October 16, 2012. Attendance is mandatory for all IMC students, so please save the date!***
This certificate demonstrates interdisciplinary breadth and a high level of academic achievement. International Media Certificate coursework allows students to study the geography, economics, history, and policies that shape contemporary practices in media around the world. IAFS majors can expect to learn more about communication media, and JOUR majors will learn more about how the world outside the US works.
An interdisciplinary certificate in addition to a major in your field gives you an edge over other graduates…and it requires no more time to complete than a regular bachelor’s degree!
