Prof. Bob Rucker thanks all the students in MCOM 105 for their semester long
 lively and insightful class interactions, and creative presentations above.

We enjoy showcasing and celebrating our global diversity
in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at
San Jose State University.

Direct communication enables people to relate to one another,
break down barriers and find common interests.

In 2017 we are producing a new video series called

The goal: To demonstrate how to talk about sensitive issues
in a peaceful and informed way that respects everyone's opinions
and life experiences.

Learning is a lifelong human experience to embrace and enjoy!


Mass Communications 105: Diversity in the Media

This course works to identify and evaluate the impact of ethnicity and traditions, gender issues, sexual orientation,
religious cultures and disability insights included in advertising, television news and entertainment programs,
radio, newspapers, magazines, public relations campaigns, movies, internet and social media. 
We closely examine contemporary issues and candidly discuss public opinions, current attitudes, trends
and perceptions that influence media decision makers as they shape timely and pertinent
mass communication diversity messages on a variety of information delivery platforms.

This upper division elective is open to all students on the San Jose State University campus.

Our School Motto: Learn By Doing!
