Journalism and Mass Communications

Welcome to the Department of Journalism and Mass Communications. JMC students graduate prepared to excel in the media-related career of their choice. Please take a few minutes to explore our majors in advertising, journalism, public relations and television production.

The JMC department is one of only 109 programs in the United States fully-accredited by the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications (ACEJMC). In May 2004, the department received its most recent six-year reaccreditation. Currently the department is undergoing reaccreditation. A team of educators, administrators and media professionals visited campus in October 2009 and has recommended reaccreditation. The Council will vote to grant accreditation at its May 2010 meeting. Programs and majors are reviewed frequently and updated to reflect national academic and professional needs.
