Professional education with a personal touch
The Department of Mass
Communication is housed in Johnson Hall. We offer programs designed to create
exceptional communicators for modern times, emphasizing multi-platform media
training and team-building for the 21st century’s digital age.
Students in our majors prepare for exciting
careers in a variety of communication industries and benefit from small class
sizes and faculty with professional expertise and active scholarship. Whether majoring in mass communication or integrated marketing communication, innovative
integrated curricula provide real world journalism, broadcast and IMC training
for the converged media and communication environment. We also
offer a digital mass media track in
the interdisciplinary information design program housed in the Department of Computer Science.
Internships and practicums are required and provide experiential learning during college education. Opportunities to study abroad and other departmental global learning activities provide cross-cultural exposure and prepare students for today’s competitive, interconnected world.
Our alumni are respected in industry and stay connected by visiting classes, attending events, and participating in curriculum development. They are also a strong resource for students, serving as mentors and offering guidance on job opportunities in the Carolinas and beyond.
