For full faculty listing, see "Faculty and Administration."


In the Roy H. Park School of Communications we continue to build on our tradition of blending and balancing liberal arts and professional, theoretical, and practical studies. We explore, create, and practice communication in its many forms, educating agile, adaptable thinkers, ethical professionals, and lifelong learners.

The Park School offers the following degree programs:

Bachelor of Science
  • Cinema and Photography
  • Integrated Marketing Communications
  • Organizational Communication, Learning, and Design
  • Television-Radio
Bachelor of Fine Arts
  • Film, Photography, and Visual Arts
Bachelor of Arts
  • Journalism

Each program involves students in all aspects of communication including the history, structure, and function of communication organizations; the technical, creative, and aesthetic elements of media production; and the evaluation, criticism, and analysis of media and communication systems.

Creative expression and experimentation are strongly encouraged, and students are invited to participate in the school's various student-operated media opportunities, including radio stations WICB-FM and 106-VIC; television cable access channel ICTV; the professional production unit, Park Productions; the campus newspaper, the Ithacan; the College yearbook, the Cayugan; the online magazines Imprint and In.Sight; and the alternative magazine of satire and opinion, Buzzsaw Haircut. Students may also join the Park Student Advisory Council, the Public Relations Student Society of America, the Society of Professional Journalists, the National Broadcasting Society (NBS), Alpha Delta Sigma (American Advertising Federation), and other student organizations.

Laboratory Fees

The Park School does not charge laboratory fees. However, students enrolled in certain courses may be required to supply their own equipment and/or materials, including computer data storage media. In the cinema and photography program, students are expected to furnish their own light meters and cameras for all still photography courses. In addition, students must purchase materials such as photographic film and paper, motion picture film, and mounting board. Because of the large number of production courses, B.F.A. majors incur additional costs for materials.
