Undergraduate Pathway in Journalism and Mass Communication

Top 3 Undergraduate Pathways in Journalism and Mass Communication 2018

Journalism and Mass Communication

Students who wish to study abroad can benefit from taking an undergraduate pathway program. These programs are designed to transition students into university in another nation, offering both preliminary studies in a subject and language studies for written and oral competency in a new language.

What is an undergraduate pathway in journalism and mass communication? This interdisciplinary program typically concerns various forms of mass communication - journalism, film, multimedia and social media - and their effective usage. Learners can take courses focusing on both the technical and business aspects of mass communication, developing an understanding of technologies used in media production and how they are employed today, as well as legal and ethical business practices in mass communication.

In completing this pathway program, students develop competency in communication at both a personal and mass scale, learning effective means of outreach to wider audiences. They can build skills with video, audio and graphical production and combine them into a multimedia project, often focusing on specific technologies.

Tuition and registration fees for undergrad pathways in mass communication vary between schools, as with tuitions for other programs. Interested parties can benefit from consulting multiple institutions for such information to compare options.

After a pathway program and full degree in mass communication, graduates might be able to find careers pertaining to various forms of media. On one end, journalists for print, broadcast, electronic and other outlets benefit from such an academic background, as do management positions in these media outlets. On the other end, advertisers and public relations managers working for companies employ an understanding of mass communication to reach out to target consumers. Mass media also entails various forms of entertainment - this opens up roles for writers, photographers, costume designers and more.

Undergraduate pathways are available at schools in various nations around the world, offering both Internet-based and campus-based options. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
