MASS COMMUNICATION

JOURNALISM/NEW MEDIA AND ADVERTISING  |  PRODUCTION AND ANNOUNCING IN THE ELECTRONIC MEDIA

We live in a time when news, information, and advertising are on a 24/7 schedule. Podcasts, blogs, newscasts, social media—content is king and you want to be part of it. You love the fast pace and the energy that surrounds the production as well as the result. You want to be where things are happening—and be the first to share it with the world.

 

At Harford Community College, we offer degree and certificate programs that prepare you not only for the media world but to successfully transfer your curiosity and skills to a four-year institution or the workforce.
