Mass Media

Student Work

Students in the Mass Media Department start creating work for their professional portfolios as freshmen. This degree gives students the tools they need to be successful in telling stories across a wide variety of formats. But you don’t have to take our word for it. Browse below to see work samples from each of our four emphases.

Contemporary Journalism

Students in MM431 Creative Media Practicum create and produce all aspects of the annual alumni magazine that is mailed out to more than 600 friends and alumni of the department. We also archive the magazines, so you can see all of the magazines online.

Creative Advertising

Students in MM 432 Advertising II were given the task to produce videos to promote the emphases within the Mass Media department. 

Public Relations

The Mass Media Banquet is held every spring semester to honor and celebrate Mass Media students. It is produced by the PR II class. The class chooses a unique theme each year. The class is responsible for all the details of the banquet, from promotion, to decorations, to evaluation, and running the actual event, all while staying within budget. This is one of the great hands-on experiences Washburn University students receive. 

Senior Portfolios

Students start their digital portfolio as part of one of the very first classes they take (MM199 Media Bootcamp), which gives them the opportunity to expand on it as they advance in their degree. All seniors finalize their digital portfolios in the MM499 Career Development & Digital Portfolio class as well as make a public presentation to peers and faculty.
