Regent University to Offer Four New Majors

Bachelor of Arts Majors Now on the Fall Schedule | May 9, 2007

Regent University's School of Communication & the Arts has announced the addition of four new majors to its Bachelor of Arts degree.

The new majors are in animation, cinema-television, journalism and theatre. They have been added to the fall schedule.

According to Dr. Norman C. Mintle, academic dean and director of the Center for Digital Media, these new programs are designed to welcome students at any stage of their undergraduate career. "Freshmen and sophomores will find exciting introductory courses that will allow them to 'sample' our majors," Mintle explains. "Transfers who come into the program with at least 30 credit hours will be able to apply as majors immediately."

According to Michael Patrick, dean of Regent's School of Communication & the Arts, the school has won over 160 student film festival awards both nationally and internationally. "Great new job opportunities are opening up for people who have the knowledge, skills, and talent at the cutting edge of their professions," Patrick says. "We are committed to helping the next generation of actors, filmmakers, screenwriters, playwrights, animators, and journalists to get those jobs and make a real difference."
