The Department of Mass Communications is nationally accredited by the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications (ACEJMC). It is one of only two accredited programs in Minnesota, giving our students the advantage of graduating from a department recognized as one of the top in the state.
Our instruction blends theoretical study with hands-on experience for students studying advertising, journalism, public relations, and television or radio broadcast. Our professors are both experienced professionals and recognized scholars. Our state-of-the-art facilities give our students access to the kind of technology they will be using in their professions.
Mass Communications is made up of four programs and a Graduate Program.
"The mass communications department really gave me a good foundation. I learned a lot. I made some great contacts."
