Department of Mass Communications

The Department of Mass Communications  offers a 10-course curriculum leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree. The major course sequence is determined by the student's emphasis in either broadcast production or broadcast journalism. The radio area is supported by WSHA-FM,a 12,000-watt radio station broadcasting from a 540 ft. tower. The television area consists of a fully equipped studio, a television control room, and portable video recording and editing equipment.
