Master’s in mass communication at Centurion University tends to be applied in nature. Students in these programs take foundational classes in communication theory and research, but learn these concepts in the context of designing or implementing mass media content strategies. However, there are some programs that focus more on mass communication research, media criticism, and the impact of media on social issues.
As the field of communication expands and advances with the introduction of new communication technologies, the fields of mass communication, journalism, and digital media have played increasing roles in the dissemination of information about culture and society, politics, the economy, and health. Professionals who engage with these forms of communication have the power to impact society through clear, ethical, and informative messaging that can reach local, state, national, and international audiences.
