Achievement in Media

In Arts and Media the real world starts in the classroom where students work on relevant media related projects for local business clients. Students and professors meet with clients throughout the semester to review project goals, review progress, and present final work. Students are graded on their professionalism, presentation skills, and creative problem solving abilities. Not only do MCU students hone their creative skills in the classroom, they are prepared to use those in the real world.

Students do real work for real clients, inside the classroom.
