Traditionally known as Mass Communication, we have made some major tweaks to the course to allow students to train both as journalists and multimedia experts.

The Journalism & Multimedia course teaches students how to craft compelling news stories and incorporate multimedia elements.

The students will be equipped with the skills needed to deliver engaging content for today’s quickly changing media landscape.

Over the course of two years, Journalism & Multimedia students will learn how to create news for digital platforms, print, radio, and television; operate industry-standard audio-visual equipment; and, artfully use multimedia elements to increase engagement.

Students graduating from the course will be equipped with the skills they need to thrive in today’s multimedia newsrooms or online publishing.
