IONA

BA in Broadcast Media

*Effective for the fall of 2014 and forward, all newly admitted students to Iona College will pursue the newly designed Broadcast Media concentration in Mass Communication.  Students who were admitted to the College prior to the fall term of 2014 will complete their previously detailed program in Television & Video.  The Mass Communication Department will work with continuing students to ensure that all requirements for their degree are met, and offer appropriate options, as needed, to ensure that student needs are met.

Students who have questions about this change and how it may impact his or her course of study and degree completion should arrange a meeting to speak with Dr. Robert Petrausch, Chair of the Mass Communication Department, or call for an appointment at (914) 633-2229.
