Journalism - B.A. (Public Relations)

The major in journalism teaches students the professional and theoretical concepts and technical skills that will enable them to be productive and responsible contributors in the field of journalism.

The program emphasizes the basics of reporting, writing, editing and photography, but professional preparation also requires an understanding of the history and the legal, ethical and social responsibilities of journalism.

The public relations program is designed to prepare students for careers as public relations practitioners and as consultants in business and industry, nonprofit organizations and governmental agencies.

Besides public relations, three other curricular options are available within this major: a broadcast journalism emphasis, a news-editorial emphasis and a photojournalism emphasis.
