Journalism and Mass Communication Majors
As a JMC major, you may concentrate in one of three programs: advertising/public relations, multimedia or journalism. In addition, an interdisciplinary degree in graphic design/advertising is available in cooperation with the Department of Art and Design, and a high school teacher certification in journalism is available in cooperation with the Department of Teacher Education.
Journalism and Mass Communication Minors
A minor in advertising/public relations, multimedia or journalism may be added to other majors outside the JMC department, giving you a strong background in messaging and technology that will enhance whatever career you choose.
The ACU Department of Journalism and Mass Communication is accredited by the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (ACEJMC).
