Mass communications is a popular academic major that can open doors to a wide variety of jobs in business. The study of media and how society communicates is particularly useful as society’s access to information through the Internet, social media, and mobile devices continues to grow and evolve. Professors who teach mass communications work in colleges and universities. Professors who work full time for up to seven years in one academic institution may be able to attain tenure, which guarantees stable employment. Many colleges and universities rely on part-time faculty, however, and make it difficult for professors to achieve tenure.
