Goldberg Media & Communications Program

The Goldberg Media & Communications program is for students who have a broad academic interest in mass media and who are interested in applying communications theory and practice to benefit others.  Residents in this program work together to design a media campaign that they envision and execute with the goal of generating a positive impact in their residential community. The campaign may include creating videos, writing a newsletter, designing advertisements, developing a blog, and/or other media-related activities. The program also includes communications-themed social activities, like movie nights and attending events in the Philadelphia area.

Goals: This program aims to provide first-year students with an opportunity to further develop their creativity and leadership skills by learning about mass communications and using that knowledge to create a positive social impact.
