The most sought-after and successful media professionals are innovators who understand how to research, report, design, and disseminate information across multiple platforms and media channels. They know how to test and implement new ideas quickly. Producing these types of workers begins in the academy, and Ball State’s program is designed to give its students the emerging media skills they need to define the future of mass communication.
