Communication and Media Studies (CMS) at Clayton State is administered by the Department of Visual and Performing Arts.
The ability to write and speak well, the ability to think critically about differing media and modes of communication, the ability to recognize quality in written, visual, and multimedia texts--these are broad-based, flexible skills that enrich our graduates' lives. In addition, these same skills offer graduates the tools that they need to thrive in professions revolutionized by rapidly evolving communication technologies.
