Journalism and Mass Communication

Journalism is crucial to the public life of a democracy.

At its best, journalism serves as a watchdog to government, offers a voice for the powerless at home and abroad, entertains and instructs the public, represents the views of varied constituencies, monitors and protects the environment and public resources, and provides a common memory for a people. Our research and teaching staff pursue these goals.

 

The Journalism and Mass Communication program offers tracks in print journalism, broadcast and electronic journalism, public relations and advertising.

 

MMUST JMC combines a classic liberal studies education with hands-on professional training. Because of this, our students have a wide career market available to them upon graduation. Our alumni regularly go into careers in magazines, television, video production, public relations, advertising, marketing, sports information, media research, media sales, law, ministerial communication, broadcasting and book publishing.

 

Mass communication is intrinsic to all aspects of life. As a result, it is perhaps the most vital discipline for understanding the world in the 21st century. With this in mind, MMUST JMC helps students not only understand media culture but also learn to become ethical communicators.
