Center for Communications

When you study communications, you prepare yourself for dozens of careers including television, print media, graphic design, even teaching, politics and the law. This center is home to a full television studio and control room, two computer labs used for video editing and graphic design and a presentation studio.  Here you will learn to speak with confidence, write with precision and design with flair so that any message you want to send will be effective when it is heard, read or viewed.    

 Program Highlights

  • Comprehensive study and refinement of writing and speaking skills necessary for effective communication
  • Rigorous college-preparatory program in a specialized learning environment that allows you to pursue your interests in communications
  • Applications of the principles of communications in areas such as television, multimedia, photography, graphic design, journalism, advertising and public relations
  • Production of student news shows, commercials, newspapers, speeches, multimedia presentations and a senior portfolio
  • Use of advanced technology to research and to write television scripts and newspaper stories,  to design newspaper graphics and posters and to shoot and edit news packages and commercials
  • Ethical and technical aspects of communications
  • Field trips, shadowing opportunities and field experiences in partnership with the business community
