Journalism, B.A.

Journalism majors gain a multi-disciplinary, hands-on learning experience as they are prepared for working in all aspects of news, from traditional newspaper or television stations to TV network reporters or new media entrepreneurs. Students are taught the fundamentals of contemporary American journalism — news gathering, news writing, editing and producing — in an atmosphere which also stresses the ethical and legal responsibilities journalists are expected to uphold.
