Students majoring in visual communication design at Anderson University learn how to design for a variety of media. But design is not just about what you make; it's also about how you think. From the first sketch to the final pixel, we encourage you to develop both skill and understanding by using critical, creative thinking to solve the problems of visual communication design.

Journalism students have the opportunity to play key roles in professional ventures at Anderson University, including WQME 98.7 FM, the Andersonian newspaper, and in video productions such as the Emmy® Award-winning documentary A Ripple of Hope. These cross-media opportunities prepare students for roles in today's diverse media.

The public relations specialization at Anderson University includes courses in public relations principles, writing, case studies, design, and digital photography. Students work with Fifth Street Communications™, the department's public relations agency, which serves the needs of local nonprofit organizations while providing students with opportunities for hands-on, portfolio-quality work.
