Philosophy and Mission Statement
The Mass Communication Department envisions a media and communication environment that is:
free and independent,
critical, vigilant and pro-active,
inclusive, pluralistic and accessible to all,
empowering and transformative, and,
committed to the advocacy of gender fairness, ecological harmony, social justice and peace.
From its humble beginnings in 1983, the Department of Mass Communication is now one of the biggest departments in the School of Arts and Sciences. The department boasts of state-of-the art radio and television studios, advanced production equipment, and faculty members who are a mix of academicians and media practitioners.
The department offers students four minor programs: Advertising, Broadcast Journalism, Development Communication and Print Journalism. Each minor track features theoretical grounding and skills training developed by experts in each discipline, in order to provide students with knowledge in a specific field, while maintaining a strong core of communication and media subjects.
