Our History

What is now the Mass Communication Department evolved in the mid-1980s by combining elements from the speech and journalism programs. Although at the time the most popular degree programs around the country were stressing narrow areas of study and career preparation, such as newspapers, advertising, and film, the department founders envisioned a broader training for students that truly encompassed the many elements of mass communication.
