|What is the Journalism program?
Journalism is the first draft of history. Journalists document the world around them and target their messages to audiences through print, web and social media. The Journalism Program consists of hands-on courses in newsgathering and writing, editing, news photography, Web design, digital imaging, public relations and advertising.
In a two-year transfer program leading to an A.A. in Journalism, students will learn to think critically, target communications, develop sources, gather information, write and edit for all types of media, shoot news photographs and video, meet deadlines, design for print and online, and work as a team to produce publications.
|What can I do with this course of study?
A degree in journalism prepares students for jobs in newspaper, radio, television, magazines, Internet publications, photojournalism, documentary filmmaking, public relations and advertising. Journalism skills prepare students for success in many fields, such as law, business, entertainment and public policy.
