Welcome to the Department of
Mass Communication

The world of communication is continuously reinvented as new media platforms emerge. At SFA, our mass communication students are prepared for the ever-changing digital world through hands-on learning opportunities with the latest technology, which allows our Lumberjacks to graduate fully career ready.  



    Erika Bazaldua is living her dream as a broadcast journalist. Since graduating in 2014, she quickly moved up the ranks to become main anchor on the Good Morning East Texas newscast. Erika loves sharing people’s stories and hopes to one day shed light on international conflict in areas like Syria.
