Our Students Learn by Doing

Media Studies and Digital Communication majors are involved in a variety of media production endeavors that benefit the entire Sacred Heart Community. These students have the opportunity to work hands-on in their field of focus to produce publications, movies, news reports, radio shows, advertisements, and much more.

The organizations offer students the opportunity to get involved at Sacred Heart while providing news and entertainment for their peers.
