Broadcasting and Journalism

Come For A Visit

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, visits to the department are limited and must be scheduled in advance. Prospective students can meet with faculty and tour facilities by following safety guidelines (wearing a mask, social distancing). We are not allowing visitors to attend classes or news and sports labs until restrictions allow.

People can tell you how great a place is, but the best way to know whether it's right for you is to see it--and experience it--for yourself. The Department of Broadcasting invites you to see for yourself the opportunities that await you as a Broadcasting or a Journalism major at Western Illinois University.
