Journalism and Mass Communications

In today's fast-paced digital world, the business of creating and delivering news, content and messages is changing. As such, JMC faculty are committed to help you succeed and prepare for tomorrow's challenges.

The JMC department is one of only 111 programs in the U.S. and one of three in Kentucky accredited by the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications (ACEJMC). We take pride in maintaining accreditation because it means we are achieving high standards - and going the extra mile to create an environment for student success.
