Undergraduate Departments


The College is accredited by the Accrediting Council of the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communications. The programs are designed to educate students for careers in communications—newspapers, radio, television, magazines, cable, advertising, film and video production, research, public relations, government, industry and non-profit organizations, and areas of new technology in which more traditional professions and new communication delivery systems have converged.
