In keeping with Madonna University’s career-preparation mission, the Journalism/Public Relations and English/Journalism programs exist to enhance the professional development of students seeking employment in any mass communication-related field. These programs provide the skills necessary for successful careers and help students understand the theoretical constructs in the discipline.

The Journalism/Public Relations program provides a comprehensive education in mass media communication while allowing students to develop skills in related areas including marketing, graphic design, broadcast and cinema arts, and technical writing. The English/Journalism major offers a flexible exploration of the English and Journalism disciplines. Both majors prepare students for a wide variety of mass media careers.
