In today’s fast-paced news environment, more expert journalists are needed. From people who report the news as it happens to those who dig deeper into the story and spend months researching all of the lines and links, the public depends on journalists to get the information that they need in order to make important decisions.
Journalists play an exceedingly important and critical role in our society. Freedom of the press is written into the Constitution of the United States of America, and people who earn degrees in this area of expertise are some of the most important activists for a free society and for democracy. In our journalism graduate degree programs, students learn about different types of investigative techniques.
Our students also learn about the different modalities of journalism. Whether someone wants to do a deep investigation and write books or create a magazine series about what they learned or if they want to report on breaking news as it happens, we provide the skills that are needed in order to succeed. Journalists must also have a thick skin in order to handle the many antagonists. There will always be people who do not agree with the scope of a free press, and we encourage our students to think critically about such situations.
Our students work with esteemed faculty and on group projects in order to advance their writing and communications skills. We also set up students on internships.
