Kappa Tau Alpha Chapter
The College of Mass Communication has received approval for a chapter of Kappa Tau Alpha, a national journalism and mass communication honor society. KTA is the seventh oldest national honor society and is dedicated to the encouragement and recognition of excellence in scholarship. KTA is awarded to students ranking in the top 10 percent of their junior, senior or graduate classes.
Eight current and former MTSU Journalism students were inducted in 2015.
The MTSU Poll, sponsored by the Office of Communication Research, is a twice-yearly
survey of public attitudes toward government, the media, lifestyles, and other topics
of importance. It is run by two School of Journalism and Strategic Media faculty,
Drs. Ken Blake and Jason Reineke, who teach in the Journalism concentration. Results
of the poll receive wide publicity in area newspapers and broadcast media. Poll results
are used in the classroom to demonstrate polling techniques and interpretation.
