“In the Trump and Fake News era, media literacy is more important than ever. This is how we can teach children to be more discerning consumers of media, and thus better citizens.”
-Carlo Dellaversion, founder
The Media Management Capstone (NMDM 5940) is the final course required of all MS candidates for degree completion. The goal is for students to synthesize what they have learned in the program and design a project that will help to move them forward in their careers. Student-centered, the individually defined Capstone Projects align with specific competencies related to the student’s chosen professional interest. Students demonstrate their core management skills, subject knowledge, critical and creative thinking with their Capstone Projects and Presentations.
