Journalism and Media Studies (B.A.)


Reporter gathering data, Reporter taking notes on notepad, and reporter presenting a story on camera.

Students who major in Journalism and Media Studies face the challenge of keeping up with the latest trends, technologies and industry debates.  Journalism is undergoing a comprehensive evolution and that means expanded opportunity for media-savvy students with excellent communication skills.  Today, traditional print and broadcast media outlets incorporate many interactive media tools such as blogs, podcasts, photography and video using Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.  The Journalism and Media Studies program prepares students to think critically, write well and be adaptable communicators able to transition fluidly from one medium to the next.

With a B.A. in Journalism and Media Studies, a student who sees herself as a non-fiction storyteller with a passion to educate and engage an audience with words, sounds and visuals, has a career in her future as a digital journalist, media manager or communications specialist.

CAS Students can now major in JAMS! The Journalism and Media Studies degree program is offered in the School of Professional Studies (SPS). In conjunction with SPS, students in the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) may now also declare the Journalism and Media Studies major while meeting the CAS general education curriculum requirements and course pre-requisites.
