Growing and Expanding. The Department of Mass Communications launched a new Public Relations sequence back in January 2014. The new sequence created new credited courses for students to experience such as Social Media, Public Relations Writing and Production, Media and Crisis Communications, Research in Public Relations, Event Planning, Principles of Public Relations, Public Relations Campaigns, and Persuasion and Propaganda.  

Under the new Mass Communications curriculum students are able to select a focus between the Broadcast Journalism track or Public Relations track. Overall, students learn techniques under each track which will make them more marketable and competitive within the workplace.
