Journalism and Mass Communication

Masters degrees are more versatile than doctoral qualifications and have a broad range of professional and academic applications. According to the U.S. Department of Education, three types of masters programs exist research, professional, and terminal. The most popular masters degree types are Master of Arts (M.A.) and Master of Science (M.S.) in a mixture of subject fields.

The field of journalism requires professionals willing to seek out information and relay it to the public through newspaper articles or radio and television broadcasting. Journalism is a field that requires individuals to be organized, hard-working, and detail-oriented.

There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.
