Journalism and Mass Communication

Journalism & Mass Communication offers a unique curriculum combining Houston Baptist University’s strong liberal arts foundation with cutting edge media skills in communication technology. We are now training tomorrow’s leaders in journalism and mass media.

The instruction merges traditional media practices with the latest in wireless broadband multimedia. Critical thinking, visual communication, writing, interviewing, and multi-platform content distribution are emphasized throughout the curriculum and will prepare you for a career in the heart of the information age.  

The courses evenly balance skills subjects in writing, reporting, audio-video production, and Internet multimedia, with critical thinking subjects like media and society, law and ethics, and new communication technologies. Discussions focus on local applications as well as the latest trends around the world. You’ll be prepared for careers as on-air reporter, editor/writer, producer, radio-TV journalist, social media coordinator, media consultant, and related positions.

There are a number of ways for students to get involved in campus media-related activities. You can write or help produce
The Collegian, HBU’s award-winning campus newspaper, or work with any number of online media currently being produced by HBU.    

Your professors are respected leaders in their fields and recognized for their contributions to teaching, service, and published research. They continue to gain regional, national, and global prominence for their work in journalism and mass media.
