The Department of Mass Communication provides the foundation for students' academic professional preparation for the field of mass communication. Our department is a crucial partner in the General Education Curriculum through its Elements of Speech course. The department plays a central role in implementing the speaking elements of the Quality Enhancement Plan, “Communicating to Succeed,” the University’s major comprehensive educational initiative in this decade.
Our department enhances the university's mission "to serve its traditional clientele of African-American students" and "expand its commitment to meet the educational needs of a student body that is diverse in race and other socioeconomic qualities" through its course offerings and through extracurricular and other opportunities that allow our students to engage in the professional aspects of mass communication.
We are defining the future of mass communication in our department! Come be a part of the adventure!
