Journalism Concentration

The Journalism Concentration is intended to prepare students for work in the field of journalism, whether it be in print, on the radio or TV, or on the Internet. The same journalistic principles apply to all.

Our students learn to be great writers and critical thinkers, and many of them have published in local newspapers and other publications.

Our Philosophy Regarding Journalism Projects

Careers in Journalism

Journalism Facilities

Students in the Journalism Concentration enjoy the use of multiple computer labs on campus for the purposes of research and writing. Classes in writing and journalism are generally lab classes and concentrate on writing and research skills on-line. Students also have access to still cameras and video cameras and a variety of television equipment. Radio journalists can create shows directly on our Internet-based radio station
