Our students report breaking news, investigate corruption, design award-winning publications, produce newscasts, cover professional sports, promote college athletics, and frame major events with their lenses. Our alumni win Pulitzer Prizes, Emmy Awards and earn all kinds of other recognitions for their journalistic efforts. But our students learn so much more than journalism. They run major movie studios, lobby to save the environment, create digital businesses, direct social media, argue legal cases, run political campaigns, write graphic novels, and build websites. In our program, students learn to think critically, produce creatively, write precisely, process information quickly, interview thoughtfully, manage people, and develop an excellent work ethic. This option is for those who prefer a broader, more general approach to learning about journalism.
