Mass Communication

It’s no great revelation that mass media are pervasive in our culture. According to media researchers, most Americans spend more time with media than they spend sleeping! This realization underscores how important it is that both media professionals and media consumers understand the role and responsibility of media in a civilized society.

A major in Mass Communication offers a broad range of coursework in various aspects of media theory and practice, preparing students for careers in media or graduate school.
