Mass Communication is a term used to describe the study of various means of media
by which information can be communicated to large segments of audience all at once.
The mass media includes newspapers, magazines, cinematography, radio, television,
etc. The graduates and Post Graduates of Mass Communication programmes work in a
variety of fields in news media and publishing, public relations and research institutes.
In the globalized world, people have awaken to the call of media and this fact has
led to major social developments in the society and in the sector of Mass Communication
studies. This has in turn led to the establishment of various media houses- be it
newspaper agencies or TV channels or advertising firms, etc. Initially, common people
were not very bothered about what the media was doing and media was strictly restricted
to the government and the business houses. But today, every common man's problem
and their demand of justice is constantly reflected through the platform of media
and there is hardly any section of the society or any issues that are not taken
up by the media.
