A major in CMP is ideal for the student interested in using sight, sound, motion, and words to tell informative, persuasive or entertaining stories and who wants to pursue careers in media industries such as film, corporate production, radio or television. The critical thinking, analysis, and research skills also prepares students for postgraduate studies.
