Broadcast Journalism Major

This major prepares you to gather, produce, and deliver news for radio and television broadcasting. You learn techniques and acquire management skills for the production of news, sports, and feature-length public affairs programs.

Through hands-on training in three different media outlets (PSTV, WARP, and WQKE), you will prepare for careers as news and sports journalists, board and camera operators, writers, anchors, and video editors. Added to a strong liberal arts core, courses in journalism, ethics, on-air performance, broadcast writing, and media production prepare you for many facets of the broadcast news industry.
