Message from Chair

On behalf of my colleagues, I welcome you to the Department Journalism and Mass Communication and invite you to spend some time exploring the many exciting opportunities offered, including major and minor offerings, internships, practicums, student media, student organizations, study abroad, and much more.

In accordance with the rapidly changing media landscape, the goal of the Department is to promote excellence in instruction, research and professional practice by preparing future journalists, professional communicators, and media practitioners.

The Department, with nearly 600 majors and minors, is one of the three academic units, accredited by the American Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications, in the State of North Carolina.

The faculty members, specializing in different aspects of journalism and mass communication, are highly committed to helping students to engage, learn, grow, and succeed. Students enrolled in the Department have the opportunity to gain practical experience in a state-of-the-art television studio, broadcast radio station (WNAA FM/HD), and student newspaper (The A&T Register).

We offer a Bachelor of Science degree with three areas of specializations: Multimedia Journalism, Mass Media Production and Public Relations. A minor is also available in each of the concentrations and may be taken by students majoring in other disciplines.

Explore and consider joining us!
