Master's Student
Journalism

A native of Arvada, Colorado, Joshua Nelson received his BA in journalism from the University of Colorado in 2020 and is continuing to the master’s program.  

Before his education, Josh served five years in the Navy. In that time, he went on two deployments as an air conditioning and small boat mechanic. Rather than reenlist, Josh decided to pursue his passion with help from the GI Bill.  

Josh’s primary experience is in writing, including working for CU’s alumni magazine, The Coloradan. However, one of his motivations for pursing his master’s is to further hone the craft of multimedia. He believes that in today’s landscape a journalist should wield all the tools in the box, and is excited to continue his education.
