Indiana Wesleyan University's Media Communication major or minor has the dual purpose of preparing you for any of a number of careers in media (e.g., television, radio, online) and giving you the broad liberal arts education necessary to achieve success in this rapidly changing industry. You'll gain writing and production skills in multiple media outlets through courses and hands-on experience in television, radio, online news, social media, blogging and podcasts.
Gain practical experience and leadership skills by working for WIWU-TV 51, Grant County's Class-A 24-hour television station committed to local programming. Students work with faculty and staff professionals on local news magazine shows, live basketball games, community telethons, and IWU cultural and worship events.
Take your storytelling to the airwaves on WIWU-FM 94.3 The Fortress. Student managers operate the University's FCC-licensed radio station, which broadcasts to all of Marion and Grant County with contemporary music and local programming.
Many of our Media Communication students broaden their media experience by working for The Sojourn, IWU's award-winning student-managed online and print newspaper. Armed with excellent skills and a broad liberal arts education, IWU Media Communication students land prestigious internships and professional positions.
