Founded in 1925, the University of Miami (UM) is home to nearly 17,000 students and is stretched across five campuses on roughly 400 acres in Miami-Dade County. At the university's inception, the only available communication-related endeavor was a 2-credit public speaking course provided by the English department. Since then, interest and expertise in the field have steadily increased, resulting in the creation of UM's School of Communication in 1985.

The School of Communications offers a Bachelor of Science in Electronic Media program where students are trained in the technical workings of audio and video equipment as well as a variety of software and electronic devices.
