Department of Mass Communication


We set the bar high. So should you.

Our programs are continually monitored to provide the most up-to date professional training delivered in appropriate technological and academic settings. This ensures a quality education that responds to the changing needs of the marketplace.

The Department is fully accredited by the Accrediting Council for Journalism and Mass Communications. Accredited programs must satisfy national standards of professional education in journalism and mass communication. Currently only two programs in South Carolina, and 114 in the United States are accredited.
