English and Journalism
People are storytellers; narratives are the main ways we explore, understand, and explain our time and world to each other. Journalism helps students learn to gather information and relate material with clarity and brevity across multiple platforms. Content is key.
In the classroom, Journalism has a student-faculty ratio that encourages close working relationships between teachers and students, a computer lab dedicated to Journalism, a digital photo lab, and electronic classrooms.
A MAJOR minor—Coupled with many other fields – political science, business, graphic arts, or health, to name a few – Journalism adds value to student's talents by strengthening communication skills.
