Coursework runs the gamut of writing, design, media strategy and campaigns to prepare graduates for agencies, client side practice, print and broadcast media or retail. Build a portfolio of print advertisements, broadcast commercials, outdoor boards and Internet banners.
Reporters, anchors, directors, editors and videographers get real world practice in a state-of-the-art, true high definition, fully digital television studio and experience what it’s really like to be behind or in front of the camera.
Driving the convergence of print and broadcast news, online journalism is an emerging field with room for growth and a demand in new talent. Students rethink how news reaches audiences, and they shoot, edit, write and post their storytelling products.
Print majors build experience as writers and as leaders of the newspaper and magazine industries. Students gain experience as reporters, copy editors, designers, photographers and editors.
Writing is at the heart of public relations. Students plan, publicize and execute public relations events, write press releases, prepare press kits and develop the management level abilities needed for leadership in the field.
The R/TV program has a proud tradition of preparing students for careers in the broadcast industry. Majors study management issues, sales strategies, and production techniques that keep stations functioning. This “hands-on” application refines skills in a real world experience.
Sports majors “call the game,” provide color commentary and write the sports pages. Students concentrate in print sports, broadcast sports or sports PR.
