The mission of the Department of Mass Communication is consistent with the goals of Iona College in the traditions of the Christian Brothers and American Catholic higher education. The Department is committed to balancing the need to educate majors who possess the skills to succeed in mass communication careers with the need to be faithful to the time-honored liberal arts education. We prepare our students to meet the challenges and opportunities of the digital age and to become skilled ethical decision-makers and critical users of media.
The Department continues to enhance its reputation of excellence regionally, nationally and internationally with a focus on diversity, life-long learning and the individual attention that is characteristic of the Iona education. We promise that our students will be well prepared, sought after by the mass communication industry and deeply proud of their Iona degrees.
