Montclair State prepares to open new School of Communication and Media
Montclair State University is getting ready to open its brand-new School of Communication and Media.
The new building, which is billed as being the most technologically advanced broadcast and media facility at any university in the United States, will officially open its doors this fall.
The school's features include a 197-seat presentation hall, a 40-seat screening room, four broadcast-ready studio and control rooms, a motion-picture stage, a newsroom, learning spaces and multimedia labs.
“Our students will gain the competitive advantage of mastering technology that not only meets industry standards but that in many instances goes well beyond,” College of the Arts Dean Daniel Gurskis said in a press release.
"This dynamic working environment is the perfect complement to a rigorous, transdisciplinary curriculum that allows students to pursue majors in communication, television and digital media, filmmaking, journalism, and public and organizational relations," he added.
"Montclair State has a long and proud tradition of preparing professionals for the communication and media industries. With the new building, we're taking the highly anticipated next step in our history."
