Why study Mass Media?
Mass communication is the process that begins when someone observes what is happening, analyzes and interprets that information and transmits it to an audience through a variety of media. The mass media industry may be roughly divided into six basic areas of endeavor; advertising, public relations, journalism, information, entertainment, and research.
