The global information age has accelerated demand for persons equipped with journalism skills. Our program enhances students’ abilities to gather, write and manage news and information. The program mixes professional training and surveys the role of the media in society. Related electives allow students to combine journalism skills with career interests such as technical writing, environmental journalism, graphics, sports writing and more. Some potential careers are print journalists, electronic journalists, news editors, information specialists, copywriters, and creative writers. Qualified students are encouraged to participate in the Department’s successful internship program.
After the first semester all majors will have a prepared portfolio reviewed by the student’s advisor prior to registration for the subsequent semester. Details on portfolio contents can be found in the student department handbook.
