The Journalism and Mass Communication Program (JMC) offers a next-generation media education that prepares its graduates to collaborate within the professional world, engage the public, and produce positive social change.

JMC uses innovative teaching technologies, empowering strategies for responsible democratic engagement, and an integrated curriculum to foster excellence among its students. Students are trained for successful careers in advertising, broadcast, print and online media, photojournalism, public relations, and media analysis.

By encouraging students to apply civic responsibility in their media work, the Journalism and Mass Communication Program seeks to empower audiences through honesty, integrity, and a commitment to social progress. Students learn the significance of their role as media professionals, gaining an appreciation of the profound interactions between mass communication and society in order to approach their work with respect, openness, and a broader cultural perspective. Included in a broad array of professional and conceptual courses are offerings in global media. A large percentage of the program’s students study abroad.

JMC is also home to two internationally recognized centers: the Center for Media, Religion and Culture; and the Center for Environmental Journalism.
