What we do

‚ÄčAsk questions. Verify answers.

Journalists find out what people need and want to know about, then they explain and show those stories in the most effective way: words, video, photos, sound, interactive graphics.

Those are the tools of journalists displayed in print and online newspapers, magazines, websites, social media, streaming media, TV and radio.

Journalism is an interdisciplinary minor between the English Department, the Communication Department, the Political Science & International Relations Department, and the Economics Department. We teach you how to think like a journalist by asking- what's important? what's fascinating? what's accurate? what don't we know?  Most of our graduates are either English majors and/or Communication majors.  They've gone on to not only work in newsrooms, television and radio stations but also pursue a variety of careers including publishing and filmmaking. Find out more at our alumni information page.

Because journalism impacts all professional and personal interests, we welcome students from all majors. 

You'll learn how to report with words, images and sound. You'll hone your writing skills and adapt your reporting approach to fit the platform, whether it's print or web magazines, newspapers, streaming media or radio/TV stations. You're encouraged to focus on particular areas of interest. Our specialized classes include issues in health/medicine, environment, politics, and pop culture commentary. You'll find the core and elective courses on our curriculum requirements page.

You'll have opportunities to be published in student and professional publications, often through internships at local and national news organizations.
