Mass Media: Celebrating 25 Years as a Department

The mass media field is always evolving. Society, culture or technology changes and we change with it. Even the beginning of this department was generated by change. The Department of Mass Media officially began in the spring of 1993. It offered concentrations in broadcast, public relations and journalism. In 1994, the program celebrated its first four official graduates.

In the past 25 years, the department has had eight department chairs who have each made improvements to the curriculum, requirements and technology. Today, the Department of Mass Media offers concentrations in contemporary journalism, creative advertising, film and video, and public relations. Mass media is still an evolving field.
