Journalism

A free press helps form the foundation of a free, informed society.

The journalism concentration provides an opportunity for students to gain an understanding of the role of the media in American society and to receive instruction in the basic skills needed to perform adequately in the field. Publications, businesses, and graduate schools seek liberal arts graduates with a background in the theory and practice of journalism.

The required curriculum includes six courses: Survey of Mass Media, Reporting, Ethics or an approved substitution, Internship, and six credits of advanced electives in journalism. Journalism Practicum is not required but is an excellent experience for the concentration student. It may be repeated three times for credit. Typing/Word processing skills are required in journalism courses.
