Mass Communication

Rapid advances in technology have opened global opportunities for communicating. The pervasiveness of mass media in our culture underscores the importance for individuals who understand the roles and responsibilities of media. The mass communication program at Principia College grounds students within the framework of a liberal arts education and offers a broad range of coursework in media theory and practice. Mass communication majors research, write, analyze, and present content effectively through various channels of communication.

“In the Mass Communication department we’re trying to bridge the divide between liberal arts and professional skill-building. We offer theory and principle and then follow up with an array of hands-on practicums. One aspect of true understanding is the ability to apply what you have learned. In the Mass Communication department we want thinkers and doers.”
