College of Communication & Creative Arts - Journalism
The Department of Journalism offers an innovative sequence that allows students to develop skills in print, broadcast, and online reporting and editing. Students prepare for careers as practicing journalists and also develop a comprehensive understanding of the commerce and culture of journalism. Also available is a journalism minor.
Students are encouraged to gain professional experience and build a portfolio by participating in the publication of our award-winning college newspaper, The Whit, or by participating in on-campus broadcast and web activities. In addition, many upper-level students enroll in an off-campus internship with professional newspapers, magazines, and radio and television stations.
The department's vision is to give students an incisive understanding of news, help students develop their craft to their full potential, provide students with the skills they need to succeed in a highly competitive field, and expand their critical-thinking and analytical skills.
Faculty in the department are all experienced professionals who combine craft with scholarship.
