Why do some political campaigns succeed while others crash and burn? Is image everything in politics? Is #fakenews a #realissue? These topics and more are featured in our new course, COM 341 Political Communication in Media, offered Monday/Wednesday at 12:00 p.m. next spring. This course is a great elective for any students and is part of the concentration in political communication. For more information on this course or the new program contact Reid Vance.


We're excited to announce a new graduate certificate in public relations! Find out more about this new program and then plan to attend MC's Graduate & Professional School Day, Tuesday, October 24, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. in Anderson Hall.
