The Journalism emphasis provides fundamental instruction in interviewing, reporting and writing for all media and prepares students for careers in the evolving world of print and online media. Journalism students learn how to analyze and synthesize information from a variety of sources to write clear, compelling articles for publication.

In journalism classes, students gain knowledge and build skills via a wide range of practical exercises in news, feature and editorial writing, news reporting, publication makeup and design, and copy editing. Students then obtain hands-on experience working with the Today, which is both an online newspaper and a printed news magazine, and through internships at local, regional and national media outlets.

The skills students learn in the journalism emphasis prepare them for all communications professions that require dissemination of accurate, understandable and interesting information.
