            Growing up, I have enjoyed watching broadcast television and playing a musical instrument. Receiving a video camera, saxophone reeds, and a toy microphone for Christmas one year, I knew that I found my passion. As I got older, this passion for television and music led me in my search of the perfect college for me to follow my passion, and I found myself in Huntsville, Texas, home of Sam Houston State University. Toured the campus twice, once with family, and staying overnight for freshman orientation. During those tours, the passion had a name in the form of majors and degrees: Mass Communication and Music, respectfully. Only need one major, so now that I have the facts, it’s time for an initial decision.

    Mass Communication offered at Sam Houston as a Bachelor’s of Arts, and the classes are mainly taught in the Dan Rather building, who is a famous journalist and alumnus of the school. This major is split into four categories: Multi-Platform Journalism, which covers journalism on television, print, and digitally, Broadcast Production, that focuses on television and radio, Film Production, Public Relation and Advertising, and Film and Television Production (“Mass Communication Program”). The Bachelor of Arts major lead to jobs in video production, broadcast and cable sales, advertising, and teaching positions in secondary schooling. Mass Communication also has opportunities to intern at national or regional media outlets like CNN Headquarters in Atlanta or KHOU-TV in Houston, or government institutions such as City Hall, where a student can learn daily routines for a whole semester (“Internships”).

Music offered at Sam Houston as a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelors of Music, which are significantly different. The Bachelor of Arts covers general foundation in music, which is simply the history of music and how it impacted the world, and music theory, the terminology of music, like whole notes, half notes, etc., and requires a foreign language study. The Bachelor of Music is more complex; it covers the study of performance, which is categorized as instrumental, string, or voice, making a student the master of the craft. It also covers the musical education or teaching certification to teach in primary and secondary education, and composition to compose and write music for artists and musicians professionally (“Music Program”).
