The Department of Mass Communication will be recognized as a regional and national leader in preparing undergraduate students for successful media and media-related careers. Through curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular activities, the Department will help students build a broad understanding of the role of our discipline in society. A multidisciplinary approach will provide students with a well-rounded understanding of the mass media while allowing for the acquisition of an in-depth understanding of at least one area of specialization.
The Department of Mass Communication believes that higher education should prepare students for career success, but also civic success. We strive to stimulate intellectual curiosity, imagination, rational thinking, thoughtful expression, and independent learning – skills necessary for success in all mass communication fields.
To accomplish this goal we couple practical experience with theoretical course work and support a strong program of co-curricular, extracurricular, and internship activities to help students understand and appreciate the crucial role mass communication has in our society.
We provide students with a well-rounded media-oriented experience while also allowing students to create an area of specialization such as audio production, video production, media management, multimedia design, journalism, public relations, events planning, and others.
