The United States Navy has its own journalism department. They employ men and women to tell what is going on every day in the Navy and around the world. The information which is used is used to make sure the public as well as the sailors get the full picture about what is really going on within the Navy. Working as a Navy Mass Communications Specialist means working to provide the information sailors need in their daily lives.
Education and Training
There are students every day spending thousands of dollars a semester in order to learn how to work in a broadcast journalism job. You will learn the same skills, but you will get paid to do it rather than having to spend out thousands of dollars. Much of the information you will learn will translate into college credits that you can use should you decide to later go to school to get your degree in journalism.
All of the recordings you have seen about historical events in the US Navy were recorded by a Mass Communications Specialist. This means all of the work you do will likely end up being played out for the rest of the world and throughout time.
This means the work you will be doing will be helping to record historical data for a future era. They will be looking back at the modern Navy through the work you have created.
