The JMC department at Abilene Christian University trains students to be excellent professional information gatherers and storytellers using the traditional and emerging tools of journalism, advertising, public relations and multimedia in print, video, online and mobile venues.

Our mission is to engage students in critical and creative thinking in the classroom, in the laboratory and through mentoring relationships, leading them to become exceptional, ethical and agile communicators in a rapidly changing media environment, embracing technology, valuing diversity and embodying Christ-centered service.
