As the world changes, we believe that UCF must change with it. With that in mind, we created the Nicholson School of Communication and Media.

NSCM offers academic excellence within communication, digital media, mass media and film programs that will redefine content creation, digital art, and communication for the 21st century.

The school includes programs in journalism, media production and management, advertising-public relations, communication, digital media, film and the Florida Interactive Entertainment Academy.

In Fall of 2019, NSCM’s communication and digital media programs will join the Florida Interactive Entertainment Academy at UCF Downtown Campus, a 21st Century learning place with access to arts, culture, nightlife and business.

We believe that our students will be better prepared for life after graduation and UCF will continue to be a national leader in higher education.
