Creating a Cross-Platform Paradigm for Digital Scholarship

Montclair State University, School of Communications and Media, Montclair, NJ

The communications and media landscape is rapidly evolving, and MSU’s School of Communications and Media seeks to break down the silos of traditional media – print, film, broadcast and radio – to create a flexible cross-platform program that can be customized to serve specific student needs.

The expanded home for the school will re-define the digital learning experience and help launch an innovative inter-disciplinary degree program across multiple media platforms.

All-in-one fusion spaces are designed to strengthen industry partnerships, blend traditional and digital learning, and physically link and engage learning spaces. Multimedia laboratories, a “newsroom of the future,” integrated media labs, screening rooms, sound stage and post-production editing suites facilitate ambitious efforts with top media brands throughout the region with an on-campus news bureau. Creating this digital learning experience is helping launch an innovative and inter-disciplinary degree program, giving students the tools they need for industry success, which has far reaching impact.

Together, we create design solutions to the greatest challenges facing our clients and society.
