The Student Media Association at Francis Marion University is composed of a group of students who share a common interest in mass communication. The group meets regularly throughout the semester for discussions about broadcast journalism, public relations, convergence journalism, and sports journalism. In conjunction with the Department of Mass Communication at Francis Marion University, the group takes field trips to media-focused locations, invites special guests, hosts panel discussions and encourages spirited conversation about mass media and journalism. SMA members need not be a mass communication major but members should share an appreciation of media media, journalism and PR.

cropped-panel13.jpgThe Student Media Association is growing! Spring 2017 marked our reactivation as a fully recognized student organization at Francis Marion University after a period of restructuring.

The SMA is planning to be even more active in Fall 2018! But, we need your help! If you’re interested in mass communication or you want to find a fun and exciting way to be involved on campus, come join us! All students are welcome in our organization, not just mass communication majors.
