Mass Communication, Communication Studies, B.A.
The Mass Communication program at Chowan University addresses the challenge of the ever-growing prevalence of media and media technologies in our lives. Media content and its systems of delivery over the past decade have gone through dramatic changes. This transformation provides an unprecedented possibility for those with the ability and ambition to harness the power of mass communication to create and grow something that could further innovate the field into new directions.
Our program offers students the opportunity to build a skill set that will give them the tools to find a rewarding career in mass communication. These tools enable the student to become leaders in their chosen arena. Whether their preferred field is in journalism, social media, sports broadcasting, video production, or other communication sectors, the curriculum provided by the program gives students a solid foundation to establish themselves as a leader in that environment. The program accomplishes this by blending theoretical perspectives taught and skill training applied to real-world situations. This method of “getting your hands dirty” markedly benefits our students because they are involved in the entire process of getting ideas on paper to the assembly of the final product. This approach supplies students with all the means necessary to do more than compete within the industry but thrive in it by the time they graduate.
