Our programs and people provide a powerful combination to support students.
Our four departments — Advertising/Public Relations; Film-Video and Media Studies; Journalism; and Telecommunications — offer five undergraduate majors. Graduate students may pursue a master’s degree in media studies or a Ph.D. program in mass communications, with several distinct areas of emphasis.
Faculty members blend strong academic and professional backgrounds and possess a commitment to excellence in teaching, research and service. Along with our research centers and special programs in the Bellisario College, students benefit from on-campus visits from academics and professionals at the top of their fields for endowed lectures and special programs.
In addition, a team of advisers in the Bellisario College provides information and insights for students who have questions ranging from scheduling to selecting a major.
