College of Mass Communication

buildingMTSU's College of Mass Communication is unique in many ways. The College of Mass Communication is the only college in the United States with both a recording industry program and extensive offerings in mass communication together. 

The make-up of the College lends itself to some unique opportunities - like the B.S. in Mass Communication with an emphasis in public relations for the recording industry or the B.S. in Recording Industry with concentrations in Music Business, Commercial Songwriting and Production & Technology. There are also minors in areas as diverse as film studies or physics.

The College  boasts nationally accredited programs in the School of Journalism and Department of Electronic Media Communication. The College also offers Master's Programs in Mass Communication.  In addition,  the College employs state-of-the-art technology in all three academic areas - Journalism, Electronic Media Communication and Recording Industry.  

In 2012, the College opened its Center for Innovation in Media, which houses offices for Sidelines, MTSU's student-run newspaper; WMTS-FM, a student-run radio station; Match Records, a student-run record label; MT10, a student-operated cable television station; and WMOT-FM, a 100,000-watt public radio station at MTSU.

The College has graduated many leaders in the communication industry and prepares current students for the dynamic field.  Such resources and efforts are recognized by staples of the industry such as Sony.  In addition, faculty of the College of Mass Comm are consistently presented with recognition and/or are working on projects in specific areas of interest.
