Mass Communication


We set the bar high. So should you.

Winthrop graduates receive a solid foundation in the liberal arts and are prepared to lead with innovation and anticipate the trends that speak to their audience. Accreditation ensures Winthrop will deliver. Our credentials tell employers graduates are able and ready to meet the challenge by understanding people and the world, and generate and communicate ideas.

The Department of Mass Communication has been accredited by the Accrediting Council for Journalism and Mass Communications [ACJMC] through rigorous examination. Attainment of high standards ensures curriculum and technology standards are delivered. Winthrop is one of two programs in South Carolina who holds this distinction and 1 of 114 in the United States of America.

Accreditation matters! Educate yourself and make informed educational choices as noted in the Council for Higher Education Accreditation brochure.
