Admissions: Programs of Study


Journalism


Our Broadcast Journalism program will teach you how to think, write and produce across the electronic and print news universe. You'll learn how to create and edit stories for television and radio news programs, social media sites, web-based publications (e.g., blogs) and for the traditional print media. While you'll explore ethics, writing and other core journalistic principles, you'll also be introduced to new technologies and techniques that are revolutionizing the way we receive, create and exchange news. As part of this process, you'll learn about documentaries, community-based news reporting, audience analysis, research, strategic planning and how to use cameras, ranging from cell phones to professional systems, to produce a story. You'll be prepared for a career in journalism and related fields and will benefit from hands-on training in our computer labs, media production suites, television station, award winning radio station and on the University's newspaper, The Wood Word.

The department also offers students a number of opportunities to enhance their education. These include professional internships, independent studies, and membership in professional and student-based organizations.
