Journalism & Mass Communication

Journalism & Mass Communication offers a unique curriculum combining HBU’s strong liberal arts foundation with cutting edge media skills in communication technology. We are now training tomorrow’s leaders in journalism and mass media.

The instruction merges traditional media practices with the latest in new media communication. Critical thinking, visual theory, writing, and multi-platform content distribution are emphasized throughout the curriculum and will prepare you for a career in the heart of the information age.  

The courses evenly balance skills subjects in writing, visual communication, multimedia production, and new media technologies. Discussions focus on local applications as well as the latest trends around the world.
There are a number of ways for students to get involved in campus media-related activities. You can write or help produce The Collegian, HBU’s award-winning campus newspaper, or work with a growing number of online media projects produced by HBU.
Students interested in a more extensive, deeper study of multimedia arts may also consider our major in Cinema & New Media Arts.
