The study of mass communications provides students with the tools to function effectively in an information-intensive society, whether as creators or as consumers of information.

Students follow a general course of study in the College of Arts and Sciences, a specialized professional curriculum in the A.Q. Miller School of Journalism and Mass Communications, and a focused selection of courses in an outside discipline.

The program offers a hands-on education that provides students with practical experience. Students can serve on the staffs of the Kansas State Collegian, the student newspaper; the Royal Purple yearbook; and campus radio station KSDB-FM. Students can also produce television programs for local cable television, including Manhattan Matters, a weekly community newsmagazine, and Purple Power Play, a sports show highlighting K-State athletics.
