The Mass Communication program 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 these goals we couple practical, hands-on 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.

Please visit the Program Requirements page of our site for information on both the Mass Communication major and minor.
