The School of Journalism and Mass Communication is an ACEJMC accredited program that offers a curriculum that introduces students to the broad framework of mass communication, emphasizing what is common and fundamental to advertising, digital media, electronic media, journalism and public relations.

The mission of the School of Journalism and Mass Communication is to pursue excellence. Our programs strive to cultivate strong professional, research, theoretical, critical and ethical skills in a diverse and engaging environment that prepares students to be socially responsible media professionals, scholars and citizens. Students may earn a Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communication or a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Advertising and Mass Communication, Digital Media Innovation and Mass Communication, Electronic Media and Mass Communication, Journalism and Mass Communication, or Public Relations and Mass Communication.

Students may gain experience by working in student media, such as the University Star, KTSW 89.9 FM, Bobcat Update/Channel 23 News, Bobcat Promotions, and through internships outside the school. They also have the opportunity to participate in intercollegiate competitions through organizations such as the American Advertising Federation, Public Relations Society of America, Texas Intercollegiate Press Association, National Broadcast Society, and the Society of Professional Journalists.

To earn a Bachelor of Science degree students must complete 120 semester hours, which includes the general education core curriculum requirements, B.S. support coursework requirements, 40 hours in the major, and a minor outside the school. Due to ACEJMC accrediting standards at least 72 hours of the total degree must be outside of MC prefix courses. As a result no more than 48 hours of Mass Communication prefix courses may be counted toward the minimum 120 hours degree requirements. Students should keep this in mind when considering minor, concentration and open elective options.

To earn a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mass Communication, students must complete 120 semester hours, which includes the general education core curriculum requirements, B.A. degree requirements, 33 hours in Mass Communication, and a minor outside the school. No more than 48 hours of Mass Communication prefix courses may be counted toward the minimum 120 hour degree requirements.

For the B.S. degree community college transfer students may apply no more than 13 semester credit hours of mass communication transfer courses to their degree. Transfer students from four-year institutions may apply no more than 19 semester credit hours of mass communication transfer courses to their degree. Regardless of transfer coursework at least 21 hours of the major coursework must be earned at Texas State.

For the B.A. degree community college transfer students may apply no more than 12 semester credit hours of mass communication transfer courses to their degree.

The curriculum in the fourth sub-area of Communication falls under another major and degree program at Texas State and would be applied to that major and degree accordingly, but not to degree programs in the SJMC.

Mass Communication Majors

In addition to core MC courses, the school offers courses to prepare students for work within all areas of mass communication.

Electronic Media and Mass Communication

The Electronic Media (B.S.) sequence offers courses designed to prepare students for careers in broadcasting, cable, satellite and new media. The courses emphasize journalism, audio and video production, management, and programming by combining skills instruction with decision-making opportunities, which students put into practice while working for student media.

Students are also encouraged to seek internships in professional media organizations off-campus.

Mass Communication

The Mass Communication (B.A.) sequence offers students the opportunity to acquire a broad, flexible education aimed at a comprehensive understanding of the changing dynamics of mass communication in society. Whether it's telling a story through multiple platforms, building a personal brand, or engaging in research, the major helps prepare students to reach across the various communication disciplines for new insight, skills, forms of expression, and expanding employment opportunities in mass media.

Journalism and Mass Communication

The Journalism (B.S.) sequence prepares students to be reporters, editors, designers and visual journalists. An emphasis is placed on writing and multimedia skills. Students are encouraged to work with campus media outlets, including the University Star newspaper, and to seek internships with media organizations off campus.
