Are you up to speed on current events? Do you thrive on deadlines? Learn the art of the creative storytelling and conquer the ever-changing multimedia landscape with a concentration in Digital Journalism. Engage audiences with verbal, written, analytical, problem solving and decision-making skills. Graduates pursue careers as new editors, radio broadcasters, TV reporters, multimedia journalists and editors.

The distribution of news is drastically changing. The Digital Journalism program instills writing cutting edge stories to stand out in the vast amount of easily accessible content. Through copy, videotaping, reporting, and editing, Digital Journalism teaches a wide array of practical skills and provides the competitive edge necessary for aspiring journalists to succeed.

Students have the choice to focus between two journalism tracks: multi-media journalism and broadcast journalism.

Multi-media journalism prepares students to investigate and report events, issues and trends to a broad audience and relay information through storytelling copy in newspapers, magazines and the Internet.

Those who study digital journalism will learn how to write, report, and break news to keep up with the evolving digital environment.

For students looking for a purely digital outlet, broadcast journalism teaches how to film, write for a broadcast and television, report breaking new stories, and edit copy and news footage.
