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. The Journalism program emphasizes these skills while recognizing the importance of new technology and the growing use of broadcast reporting techniques online. Through courses in reporting and storytelling, critical thinking and law, you will be introduced 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 daily newspaper, The Surveyor, featuring broadcast and print stories.
