Passion, Purpose, and Progress

Among several changes unveiled this fall, were new names for CCIM’s Journalism and Telecommunication departments, a reinvigorated Computer & Information Technology (CIT) program, and the expanded relationship between CCIM, student media, and Ball State Public Media. These changes resulted from months of surveying prospective and current students, alumni, faculty, and employers in the media industry.
