Department of Journalism

Professional Journalists, Real-World Results

The Journalism Department emphasizes a finely tuned balance between journalism theory and practical training. Teaching students the fundamentals of their craft is essential - they will focus on skills such as writing, editing and photojournalism as they apply to print and new media. The interdisciplinary major is driven by the progressive development of students' critical thinking, writing, editing, communication, time management and observation skills in the context of a liberal arts education. The faculty is led by professors who are enthusiastic teachers and productive professional journalists, offering students experienced guidance in today's rapidly changing, media-influenced world.
