A university emphasis in journalism provides a student with the skills and the insight to research and deliver current information to audiences through a variety of media. Journalists learn to use traditional storytelling techniques to relate news and information in converged print, radio, television, film, and online media.
Journalism students learn to present information to the public accurately, briefly and clearly. Students learn important skills in law, ethics, and research that contribute to professional delivery of information to their audiences.
Many journalism students put their degrees to use in the professional newsrooms of television networks, radio stations, and daily newspapers. Other journalism majors graduate to roles in private industry, where they help companies use the tools of the news media to effectively tell their stories and communicate with their customers.
