Mass Communication



The Department of Mass Communication offers an academic program leading to the Bachelor of Science Degree in Mass Communication. Students elect to follow one of these tracks:

Each student who enrolls in the program will complete a core of Mass Communication courses – including Introduction to Mass Communication, Writing for the Media, Mass Communication Research, and Mass Communication Law and Ethics – and academic coursework specific to her or his track.
