It is strongly recommended that CMD students have a working laptop, not only a tablet, iPad, or Chromebook.
For students considering moving into the creative career space (graphic, web, infographic, etc.), we recommend a Mac laptop and suggest that students consider subscribing to Adobe Creative Cloud so they can access, at least, Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, and Dreamweaver.
For students considering moving into the corporate communication space (events, relations, crisis, etc.), we recommend a working laptop—Mac or PC.
