Bemidji State University (Department of Mass Communication)




The Mass Communication Department offers a wide range of major-minor combinations and encourages students to work in both the print and electronic media.

Writing skills are emphasized. Intensive classroom and laboratory experiences include the study of historical, practical and theoretical aspects of mass communication.

These experiences help prepare students for the challenge of the rapid technological changes they will experience as they move through their careers.

Mass communication is generally divided into two media: print and electronic. The print media include magazines and newspapers, and non-periodical publications such as posters, newsletters, brochures, and annual reports. Electronic media include television, radio, and video and audio productions. Photography contributes to both areas. Computer-generated audio and video--referred to as "new media"--play an increasing role in the field. Most media outlets, for example, maintain Web sites.

Historically, mass communication has been the primary means by which a society relays information to and entertains the public. Technological advances have promoted instantaneous, global, and persistent presentation of images and ideas. Although the media continue to reflect society, their ability to influence public opinion and the actions of groups and individuals has increased.
