Mass Communication degrees abroad

Mass communication is a rapidly changing field that focuses on how and why messages are transmitted to large numbers of people.

As a mass communication student, you’ll get to grips with several different types of media, including print, television, radio, digital media, and social media. You’ll analyze the role that mass communication has played throughout history, and consider how it continues to shape today’s society. You’ll learn about the laws that govern communication outlets and have the chance to put what you’ve learned into practice by planning and creating your own content.

Never before has the world been more connected and that’s partly thanks to the global nature of mass communication. By studying abroad, you’ll see how information is communicated internationally, but also how the delivery and content of messages is influenced by social and cultural contexts. As well as developing professionally, you’ll experience personal growth, make new friends, and explore the world.

Mass Communication program structure

You can study mass communication at a range of undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Two year-associate degrees provide students with a solid grounding in the subject. They’re a great avenue if you’re hoping to secure entry-level employment or progress onto a bachelor’s program.

A BA in mass communication is studied over three or four years, depending on your university and country of study. Students are often advised to complete an additional year-long placement between their second and final year of study to gain hands-on industry experience and improve their employability.

If your BA has left you eager to discover more about the subject, you can enroll in a postgraduate program. An MA can be studied on a full-time or part-time basis over one or two years. Once you’ve got your master’s under your belt, you can study a PhD which takes around five years to complete.

Every mass communication program will be taught slightly differently, but most will involve lectures, seminars, practical workshops, and one-to-one tutorials. You’ll likely be assessed through a combination of exams, essays, written assignments, presentations, and practical projects.

Mass communication is a flexible degree that can be easily tailored to reflect your interests. However, most universities will provide a comprehensive grounding in these core areas:

  • Theories of mass communication
  • Mass communication and society
  • Research methods in mass communication
  • Mass communication law
  • Mass communication and globalization
  • Digital media
  • Telecommunications
  • Media design
