About the Political and Mass Communication program at University of Oklahoma

Faculty in the OU Department of Communication pursue the study of political and mass communication with a wide range of theoretical and methodological approaches. The department is also the home of the Political Communication Center, which holds the world’s largest archive of political advertising. 

Mass communication research typically concerns the production, content, audiences, reception, and/or effects of messages transmitted via the mass media. Because contemporary politics is largely (but not exclusively) mass mediated, political communication research often addresses these same concerns with regard to political campaigns, issues, ideology, and power.
