Department of Mass Communication


Mission Statement: The Department of Mass Communication provides education to students of a historically black institution with an understanding of their responsibilities and opportunities to serve multicultural communities in the United States and globally as journalists and strategic communicators. The department also aspires to strengthen the professional media with skills, knowledge, and expertise from diverse perspectives that are reinforced by individual backgrounds and experiences.

 

In pursuance of the mission, the Department of Mass Communication has the following objectives:

  • provide a broad understanding of the role of communication and mass media in society;
  • prepare students for careers in the areas of mass communication – multimedia, broadcasting, public relations and sports journalism;
  • offer workshops, and other professional services to the community;
  • provide an intellectual climate for students to think critically of issues related to mass media at the regional, national, and global levels; and
  • provide an understanding of the importance of personal and mediated intercultural interaction as an avenue to succeed in a multicultural society.
