A diploma is earned by a student who has completed a specified field of study. Students earning a diploma have gained expertise that will allow them to compete for jobs in that field or perhaps apply as a prerequisite to a higher education program.

What is a diploma in journalism and mass communication? This diploma program is designed for students interested in documenting news stories or working behind the scenes for print, broadcast or online media. Online media has become increasingly relevant, with online publications and podcasts attracting larger audiences. Since this is such a broad field and the diploma program is shorter than a degree program, students usually specialize in a particular subject while earning the diploma. For instance, diplomas may be offered for social media, online communication, or marketing.

Students earning a diploma in journalism and mass communication typically improve their communication and organization skills, and learn how to write for broad audiences. These abilities can help them effectively market themselves as desirable job candidates.

The cost for a diploma program depends on the course being offered, as well as the school offering the course. Because this is a vast field, with many subcategories within, some courses can be completed in a matter of weeks, while others may take several months or longer.

Students with diplomas in journalism and mass communication can become writers and editors, reporters and audio/video technicians, photographers and online publishers. In many cases, students earning a diploma in this field choose to continue their education by pursuing a bachelor’s degree, enabling them to obtain a more comprehensive education over a longer period of time. In other cases, they may have already established a career and participated in the course to stay relevant in their field.

Diplomas in this area are often offered at trade schools and community colleges and are also available online.  Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
