Communication Arts - How Gifts Make a Difference

On Day of the Badger, we’re focusing on raising funds to help create undergraduate internships, support graduate research, and purchase equipment. Our majors want to get a foothold in major media and communication firms in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, and Milwaukee. Internships are essential. Our graduate students are researching amazing dissertations on topics such as global media distribution between Korea, Japan, and the U.S.; brain activity during different types of creative reasoning; and editing in contemporary action films. We need to upgrade our equipment for our production courses.

Why We Need Your Support

We study the production and consumption of communication in all its forms, including film, television, social media, political discourse, and interpersonal communication. We have recently taken the lead in the critical study and production of digital media through two certificates: digital studies and digital cinema production. By donating, you can support tomorrow’s brightest filmmakers, communication researchers, and media scholars.
