Working in Mass Communication
Mass communication informs and influences audiences, broadening and changing perceptions about ourselves, each other and the world around us. A degree program in mass communication helps increase awareness and understanding of how the media affects audience behavior and patterns of thinking — and prepares you for advanced studies or a career as a reporter or editor, spokesperson, media relations expert or media producer.
