Top Courses in Journalism and Mass Communication

Journalism and Mass Communication

Courses are often directed toward recent high school graduates as a way to become familiar with a certain subject. However, some courses focus on returning students or those seeking advancement at work. Courses typically take a few weeks or months to complete.

What is a course in journalism and mass communication? Courses like this often focus on either gathering or dispensing information. Students might learn techniques for research and interviews to gather useful information. Other courses may focus on how to take that information and present it in an understandable way in written, video or audio form. Real-world experience is often included before completion of the course.

In a journalism and mass communication course, you may learn how to retain focus for long periods of time, how to effectively communicate to large groups and how to intuit when a situation might become newsworthy. These skills can help you handle stress and other problems in your daily life.

The cost of a particular course will vary depending on the subject, location and length. Other factors include the school itself and the cost of books or supplies necessary to complete the course.

Completing this course may put you on the track for a career in journalism. Your knowledge of how to gather or present information to mass audiences is useful in news outlets and government positions. If you want to focus on writing, you could be hired by a newspaper or online news outlet. If you want to focus on video, you could look into jobs as a reporter or as part of a journalistic support crew.

Even though physical newspapers are less popular in some countries, journalism still takes place in many forms and is taught at many schools. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

How to Write a Screenplay

The Screenplay Itinerary (Cinema, Television and New Media) is a two-level syllabus - distributed over two academic years - specifically designed for the training of screenwriters.

Although the natural name of the script is cinematic, the truth is that it would be absurd to pretend that, in 2016, the Internet or television does not exist. And although it is true that both share a common basis with the grandfather of celluloid, so it is that they assume the appearance of new conditions, new opportunities and, therefore, require the scriptwriter a certain ability to adapt and mutate their work.

Objectives of the Itinerary

The goal of Guion's Itinerary is for the student to acquire the technical and narrative tools of the scriptwriter, as well as a structured method to tackle projects more or less complex and a basic knowledge with which to defend themselves in the vast and emerging audiovisual market.... [-]
