The journalism major prepares students for the print or online journalism profession. Courses focus on sharpening writing skills and the ability to sift and evaluate news, as well as learning about the rapidly growing communications media.

Students serve as interns at newspapers, magazines, and radio and television stations in Indiana, Kentucky, and Illinois, gaining "real world" experience in acquiring contacts and honing journalistic skills, writing, and reporting. Some interns serve as writers, photographers, and public information specialists in the Indiana legislature.

Journalism students have excellent opportunities on campus to practice their skills from the first semester. They can work at The Shield, the weekly student newspaper; AM 820 WSWI, the student radio station; Access USI, in the Television Center; and Distance Education Center. Working on campus is an excellent way to prepare for the working world.
