Hispanic Media Program Planned

08/10/12

CSUF President Mildred García, College of Communications Dean William Briggs and several members of the College of Communications faculty and staff met with members of Hispanic media outlets at a reception July 18 hosted by the Walt Disney Co. to discuss the launch of a new program in Hispanic media at Cal State Fullerton.

"As the leading university in the nation when it comes to awarding bachelor's degrees in communications and journalism to Hispanics (Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education, May 2012), it makes sense for us to offer this program reflecting the new realities of the California media marketplace and the students we serve," said Briggs. "We are especially pleased that President García will be joining us as a champion for this proposed academic program."
