Welcome to the Mass Communication and Society Division (MCS) of the Association for Educators in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC). The MCS Division encompasses the widest array of theoretical and methodological approaches to studying mass communication, including drawing upon other disciplines. Areas showcased in MCS Division sessions include: advertising, applied communication, broadcasting, citizen journalism, digital media, environmental communication, game studies, health communication, international communication, magazines, media economics, media effects, media ethics, media history, media law, media and popular culture, media and religion, minority communication, newspapers, political communication, public relations, sport communication, and visual communication.

Membership in the MCS Division has its perks. As one of the largest and most active AEJMC divisions we offer more teaching, research, professional freedom and responsibility, and graduate student awards than any other division. The MCS Division also sponsors its members for AEJMC fellowships and scholarships. In addition, as an MCS Division member you receive a free subscription to Mass Communication & Society, a Taylor & Francis publication with one of the highest impact factors in our field.

We invite you to become a member of the MCS Division and find out more about all the exciting things MCS has to offer. From our graduate student mentorship program, to the syllabus exchange, to our new member awards and honors we think you will find the MCS Division has amazing opportunities for you.
