Department of
Mass Communication



The Mass Communication Department focuses on undergraduate education in print, broadcast and online journalism, video production, media management & sales, public relations/advertising and film production. Housed in the Dan Rather Communications Building, the department is home to an award-winning student newspaper, 24-hour student radio station, and student operated community television facility. Students produce television and radio news programs for the SHSU and Huntsville communities and broadcast the only university Spanish-language television newscast in Texas.

The Mass Communication Department emphasizes the education of ethical and technologically proficient communication professionals who are capable of making a positive impact on their environment and on society. Through their work in our program, students grow to become informed, responsible, creative, and critical communicators capable of participating broadly in a diverse, multi-cultural, and rapidly changing media world.
