Journalism Concentration

The concentration in Journalism combines traditional print-focused work with multimedia production thus providing students the opportunity to develop the writing and media skills required in contemporary journalism. As is the case with all our majors, students will take classes in both the history/theory and production of journalism, and they will graduate prepared to be active and engaged citizens working as communication professionals.
