Print and broadcast journalism—and a growing number of related fields—place a premium on clear, concise, accurate writing based on the timely collection of information. This program emphasizes these skills while recognizing the importance of new technology and the growing use of broadcast reporting techniques online. Courses in reporting and storytelling, critical
thinking, and law introduce you to the basics of print and broadcast, while exploring various challenges within the industry. Two internship placements provide you with the opportunity to enhance the skills you learn in the classroom. Our students produce an online newspaper, The Surveyor, featuring broadcast and print stories.

This is a US Federal Aid Approved program.
