Perhaps the most common question asked by students considering Mass Communications as their major is, “Are there jobs for people with a Mass Com degree? Sure, it’s fun and ‘cool,’ but I need to make sure I can work professionally after I graduate.”
How many television channels do you have on your home system? How many stations can you pick up on your radio or satellite receiver? How many audio and video sources do access every day? It is obvious that there are literally thousands of communications sources available to you. Who produces all the material presented on these outlets? Who promotes them and creates the material to attract users? Who manages the companies and facilities that provide these services?
The answer to these questions demonstrates the need these industries have for educated, qualified people. Hundreds of thousands of people work doing jobs that allow them to be creative and have rewarding lives.
In 1946, the administration at Lindenwood made a commitment to providing a high-quality Mass Communications program. Since that time, the university has recommitted and strengthened it resolve to prepare its students for a very competitive job market. These are not just “missions” written on in a dusty book somewhere. Take a look at the evidence of this resolve.
