At larger state schools, being a mass media major usually means a lot of waiting. But at Baker University, our students have the opportunity to contribute to award-winning, student-run print and online newspapers, radio, and TV stations as early as the second semester of their freshman year.
If you re creative and imaginative, a degree in art could be just what you re looking for to express yourself. Art may not be a vocational subject that is, one that leads to a specific career but this does not mean it won t be a good preparation for the world of work.
Whether you choose to specialize in fine art or the history of art, the skills you gain during your degree are likely to be highly valued and transferable to many sectors, including specialized art careers as well as many general graduate roles. Alongside a range of practical arts skills, art graduates should also have good observational, analytical and research skills, including the ability to solve problems creatively and work well both independently and in groups.
In the majority of the art careers detailed below, you will find it essential or highly advantageous to have a varied portfolio of work to show prospective employers, including some of your own original ideas as well as coursework. The theoretical side of your degree should allow you to put this work into context, explaining your influences, the thought behind your choice of themes and why you used certain materials and techniques.
To create a personalized education experience, we offer three tracks for media majors public relations, multimedia, and sports media designed with flexible, integrated curriculum to fit your interests. Professors will work with you in small classroom settings to learn the skills that interest you. You will have abundant opportunities to go above and beyond, building your portfolio as soon as day one. Our students, from freshmen to seniors, can be found broadcasting Baker football games in the press box at Liston Stadium, winning Pacemaker and personal awards at national journalism competitions, and interning at multimillion dollar public relations firms in Kansas City.
