Communication: Digital Journalism

Digital Journalism Student taking notes

Students in our digital journalism program learn to get to the bottom of questions for which the public needs answers. They also develop skills to deliver those answers online, on air and in print, with text, images, audio and video. Whatever the format, good journalism is grounded in good writing, and our faculty focus on helping students to communicate clearly and quickly with words. We also give students a grounding in the ethical values and legal knowledge they’ll need for a successful career telling stories their audiences need to hear.
