SIUE Mass Comm. hosts annual “Preview Day” for students

SIUE Mass Communications professor Dr. Musonda Kapatamoyo spoke with prospective students on their interests in the SIUE Mass Communications department. The presentation included information about the program specific requirements as well as an overview of the Graduate & Undergraduate courses. Dr. Kapatamoyo also answered questions on the three tracks of studies; Media Advertising, Print Journalism, and Television Radio. “It’s important not only for our students, but students all across campus to understand Digital Literacy..” says Kapatamoyo. “We teach web design here in the department to students, who can come in to the course and start from scratch and with 16 weeks experience, they have an expertise.”
