What Can I Do with A Degree in Global Communication?

We are bombarded with images and messages every day of our
lives, from billboards towering over the highway, to television
commercials, newspaper ads, leaflets, brochures, and radio
advertising. These messages shape our culture and define our
perceptions, influencing the way we think and look at almost
everything from a candy bar to geopolitics. Are you curious to
investigate the role mass media has played, and continues to
play, in culture? Given the enormous effect of the media on our
daily lives, there is much to learn about how and why media
reflects our social values. You will also examine the ways in which information is created and distributed, whether through a television commercial or a personal e-mail.
