Education is the fundamental element of success, but the COM/media department understands that education is best realized when coupled with the aspect of practical experience. Below are some of our Alumni who have taken what they have learned, and have branched out to change the world.

B.A. in Communication Studies
Video Production/Digital Media
Jason Lee Guthrie graduated from UNCW in 2009 with a B.A. in Communication Studies with a focus on Video Production and Digital Media.

He received his M.A. in Educational Media from Appalachian State University in 2011, and has served as an adjunct professor for Gaston College and The Art Institute of Charlotte. In 2013, he accepted an assistantship appointment to the Doctoral Program in Mass Communication at The University of Georgia.
|Kevin graduated from UNCW in 1995 with a degree in Communication Studies. He worked at production company in Morrisville, NC---starting as a production assistant and leaving as an Avid Editor--from 1997 to 2005. In 2005, Kevin took a job as Senior Editor at Contrast Creative in Cary, NC--cutting TV spots, corporate & medical videos. In 2009, he became Avid Editor at SAS , Institute in Cary, NC. "I didn't have the hands on equipment that UNCW has now. My advice to current students is to learn everything you can about every piece of equipment around you. Technology changes so much and equipment gets so advanced, that you have to keep pushing yourself and your knowledge of video production."
