Welcome communications Studies Majors!
Communication Studies majors are strongly recommended to purchase individual equipment and software that will be used throughout the courses of the major curriculum. People doing communications projects today are constantly on the go, and their equipment needs to move with them. Laptop computers provide this mobility, and the MacBook Pro 15-inch screen laptop works best with the software (Adobe Design Premium, Final Cut Express) used by creative people throughout the communications industry.
By purchasing a recommended bundle from the Saint Joseph's University Apple Store you can make sure you are getting the absolute best deal. All recommended systems are bundled with the 3 year AppleCare Protection Plan.
|Anouncement June 22, 2011 Communications Studies majors are not required to purchase a laptop. There is a recommended system on the Apple Custom Store for Communications Studies majors for those wishing to purchase a laptop.
