MAMCJ (Masters of Arts in Mass Communication & Journalism)

What’s the first thing you do when you wake up? Check your phone, scroll through your newsfeed, and probably hit like on that cute puppy video! 

Have you ever wondered how the content on your newsfeed is generated? It doesn’t simply include homemade videos of kids doing crazy things, or people posting cover songs. 

Valuable content, specifically reports of issues like politics, domestic violence, and sexual harassment often surface on social media outlets. The key idea is: Journalism matters.

More on MAMCJ program below.
