About the New England School of Communications

At Husson University, the New England School of Communications (NESCom) is home to approximately 500 students who are working towards degrees in Audio Engineering, Marketing Communications, Graphic/Visual Design, Journalism and Entertainment Production. 

The New England School of Communications® prepares students for careers in the broad field of communications. We educate students in the applied technology and content consistent with the platforms that they will be using in their professions. Our instruction is designed to give students not only the critical knowledge but also the technical skills they will need to be successful in their chosen careers.

Our History

The New England School of Communications® began as the New England School of Broadcasting in 1981, to train students for positions in the broadcasting and allied fields. From a downtown location NESB purchased the "Broadcast House" in 1983, and an up-to-date facility was built.

The move proved to be temporary as the School grew rapidly. In 1985, NESB moved to a facility on the campus of Husson College and continued to grow by providing housing, dining, a gymnasium and other campus amenities.

In 1997, NESCom merged with Husson and became a wholly owned subsidiary. In 2001, a new Communication Center, the Wildey Communication Center was established. A new wing was added in 2004 to the Wildey Communication Center to accommodate its expanding student body. In 2014, the New England School of Communications officially became part of the academic community of Husson University as it was integrated as the forth school and college of the University.
