Mass Communication

The Mass Communication minor focuses on the broad creation, application, and dissemination of information through mass media. Courses in integrated campaigns, media law and ethics, and public relations help prepare students for careers working with news media, social media, media tactics and strategy, and other mass media distribution models. This minor is an excellent complement to majors in business and marketing, criminal justice, public health, sport management, and Christian ministry.
