Journalism is the newest major to be offered by the department. The training of journalists has always been important to insure a credible flow of information to the public. This program aims to produce graduates who are professionally orientated and technically proficient, well prepared for the world of work, and responsive critical thinkers and reflective practitioners who will make significant contributions in their chosen fields. A unique multidisciplinary approach places emphasis on critical thinking, research, and reporting in relation to word, image and sound. A convergence approach allows students to learn and practice journalism across a variety of distribution methods.
