Communicate with purpose
As media continues to evolve from the printed page to other channels like broadcast television, radio and social media, the need for communicators who can effectively share important information is more crucial than ever. With a degree in Mass Communication, you’ll learn how to write, speak and use technology in order to clearly and creatively articulate messages - whether you pursue a degree in business, media, sports or non-profit work.
The Mass Communication program of Concordia University Wisconsin will ground you in writing, speaking and interpersonal communication skills. You’ll learn the basics of reporting, writing and editing in a journalistic style as well as studying the history of animation from silent film to digital media. During your time in the program, you’ll have the opportunity to learn effective broadcast news writing techniques, produce programming for our radio station, and complete your own film or video project. Plus, you’ll write articles for CUW’s school newspaper, The Beacon. This practical training, combined with a strong liberal arts education that is founded in our Christian mission, will prepare you to tell your organization’s story in a meaningful way. Whatever organization you end up in, you’ll be ready to make an impact while doing what you love. This program also available as a minor.
What to expect
As a graduate in the Mass Communication program, you’ll leave with all the skills you need to communicate effectively through a variety of channels. Not only will you be a stronger communicator, you’ll be a better leader. Having studied topics like interpersonal communication and cross-cultural communication, you’ll be ready to work with diverse groups of people. You’ll also be able to evaluate broadcast news writing and radio dialogue to critically think about the best way to convey your message. What’s more, you’ll examine issues within the field like building or breaking trust with an audience and analyzing why certain messages are effective. You’ll be ready to handle challenges in the field, stand out in the workforce and lead a life full of Christian service.
