Academic programs for the study of mass media are usually referred to as mass communication programs. Social role and importance of modern media in communication and culture. Mass communication describes a relationship between a large, heterogeneous, and anonymous audience. The mass media serves this purpose.

Mass communication is a term used in many ways but it is a reference to the activities of the mass media as a group, the concept, "massiveness," to distinguish among media, and the questions about communication as applied to the activities of the mass media.

Mass communication refers to the distribution of entertainment and associated media. Our communication happens on a "mass" basis, between people who don't see or even know each other?
