Program Description

A major in Mass Communication at NCCU will prepare one for a variety of careers and for continued personal, civic, and professional development. All courses in the major enhance skills in reading, writing and critical thinking. The Mass Communication major offers concentrations in broadcast media, communication studies, and journalism. Mass Communication majors specialize in the theory and practice of print and broadcast media. Mass Communication alumni are working all over the nation in public relations, newspaper and magazine journalism, and broadcast and online media and film. The Broadcast Media concentration is best suited to those who wish to prepare for careers in radio and television production. Journalism is the concentration for those who want a career in broadcast, print, or online journalism. The Communication Studies concentration is for those students who want a balanced mix of study in broadcast and print media, including public relations. Many Mass Communication majors work for our award-winning campus newspaper, the Campus Echo, for our student-run radio station, AudioNet, and for NCCUs 50,000-watt FM station, WNCU, whose staff and facilities are often available for student training and classroom presentations.
