Robert Morris University positions itself as institution that prepares its students to enter the profession upon graduation. This core value is a centerpiece of the Media Arts curriculum where students may study one or more of four creative, yet applied disciplines. To better understand the state of the art, the Media Arts Department has established an advisory board composed of industry professionals to provide critical input regarding what employers are looking for in a student who has completed the undergraduate course of study.
