Journalism, B.A.

The Journalism major prepares students for practice in an exciting and significant time. You’ll be endowed with a solid practical and technical knowledge base as well as an understanding of the legal, ethical and theoretical aspects of journalism and its critical role in a democracy.

Applied and critical thinking skills developed in the study of journalism are useful in a broad range of professions including the obvious, such as reporting, writing, producing and editing to jobs in other areas such as public relations, advertising, economic development, social media, law and education.
