Journalism and Mass Communication tackles the ways in which ideas are exchanged in modern society. Students learn how to find factual information and communicate that through styles of writing, speech, multimedia tools, such as online platforms. Students interested in current events, reading, writing, research, and working for news reporting and communication platforms should opt for journalism and mass communications. Careers in news reporting, public relations, television, and advertising are some of the future options under this subject.
