Journalism students in the classroom


A degree in journalism prepares students for the journalism profession and other related careers in the field of communications.

Courses focus on sharpening writing and editing skills, capturing photos and video, creating engaging content for the web and analyzing and evaluating news.

Journalism courses focus on reporting and writing, copyediting, and visual elements such as photography and graphic design.

Campus media outlets provide opportunities for students to master their skills. They can gain valuable experience at The Shield, 95.7 The Spin, SETV 12 and Access USI.

Students also intern at newspapers, magazines and radio and TV stations where they gain professional experience and develop contacts in the industry.
