Learn to ask big questions, dig for answers and find creative, effective ways to tell stories. Experiment with and adopt new modes of journalism as they emerge, and use those techniques to report on issues that matter.

This major will satisfy and fuel your curiosity. You’ll develop essential journalism skills—gathering accurate information, conducting interviews and producing compelling content—all with a goal of telling stories that reveal important social truths. You’ll also master the technology to produce videos, audio and graphics for mobile platforms, the web, social media, television, radio and print.

  • Gain practical, hands-on experience and resume-building opportunities through two student media courses exclusively for journalism students.
  • Intern and work with student and professional media outlets, including newspapers, broadcast networks, radio stations, websites and social media companies.
  • Add a specialty to your major by concentrating in a secondary area of study—the equivalent of a minor—in a separate subject area of your choosing.
