The Mass Communication and Society Division (MCS) spans traditional disciplines, such as advertising, public relations and journalism, and newer, convergent areas of study. We also encourage a variety of methodological approaches to the study of media and its many societal influences. One of the largest and most active of the AEJMC divisions, MCS promotes research, teaching, and professional freedom and responsibility (PF&R), as well as typically co-sponsoring AEJMC’s annual Midwinter Conference. The MCS Division is also known for the generous recognition it provides to faculty, professionals and graduate students, such as research awards and grants, teaching awards, PF&R awards, and travel grants. The Division also publishes Mass Communication & Society, a well-known research journal published by Taylor and Francis Group.
