The University of Southern Mississippi (School of Mass Communication and Journalism)

Distinguished and proud, the University of Southern Mississippi offers life changing learning experiences. The distinct demands of the 21st century require a powerful approach for success. Get excited, get involved and, at Southern Miss, become connected to a future you envision.

The School of Mass Communication and Journalism was formed through a merger of the departments of Journalism and Radio, Television, and Film in 2001. The school maintains the strengths, core values, and interests of the original departments while creating a new and stronger structure that facilitates efficiency, collaboration, creativity, adaptation to change, and an orientation toward the future.

The School of Mass Communication and Journalism offers students the opportunity to learn the concepts and technical skills they will need to be productive and responsible contributors in the diverse fields of mass communication. We offer the state's only comprehensive mass communication program that provides the full breadth (print and broadcast journalism, broadcast production, photojournalism, film, advertising and public relations) and depth (baccalaureate to doctoral degrees) of mass communication education. We offer the only programs in the state in film production and photojournalism and the only master's degree in public relations, and we are the only mass communication program in the state with a dual-campus responsibility ( Hattiesburg and Gulf Park campuses). Our curricula also have a long-standing international orientation, including study-abroad opportunities in the United Kingdom and other countries. The school is served by 12 full-time faculty members who have significant professional experience in their fields in addition to advanced academic degrees. At present, we enroll more than 500 students. The cultural diversity of the student body of Southern Miss is unmatched by any other institution of higher learning in the state.
