Program Mission Statement

The mission of the journalism degree program is to prepare students for media careers in which they will be expected to report, edit and present high-quality journalism for a variety of platforms—including newspapers, magazines, audio, video and Internet-based technologies—and for a combination of these formats. The program emphasizes clear writing, factual accuracy, critical thinking, ethical and legal principles, social consciousness, technological skill, and practical, hands-on reporting and editing experience. Students will develop an awareness of the role of journalism in a democratic society and think critically about emerging issues in journalism and mass media.
