Dual Degree Program Mass Communication
From print and television to digital publishing to social media, how and where we get our news has shifted drastically in recent years—and will continue to do so as technology and audiences evolve. These shifts have brought new questions about the ways the news is gathered and reported, as well as how and where it can be disseminated. To tackle these and other issues, you will need to have a strong understanding of how the media operates and how they are protected by the law.
Whether your interests lie in protecting First Amendment rights and the freedom of the press, or if you’re more interested in the business of the media, such as helping negotiate broadcast rights, the J.D./Master of Mass Communication can help you achieve your goals. Students who graduate from this program often become First Amendment law specialists, work for major media companies, or become legal analysts for the industry.
