Mass Communication

This program is designed for the student intending to transfer to a senior institution to complete a baccalaureate degree. The curriculum offers an emphasis in Public Relations & Marketing, Multimedia Journalism, or Multimedia Production. Students in the Public Relations & Marketing emphasis complete more design oriented courses. Students in the Multimedia Journalism emphasis complete more writing courses. Students in the Multimedia Production emphasis complete more applied study courses. Separate curricula are provided as guidelines.

HCC’s Mass Communication program is also a proud technical supporter of Freepod, a local news podcast that covers the Freeport, Illinois area with volunteering journalists.
