Student Journalists Make a Difference




A free press is a critical part of our democracy. Journalism courses explore this role, as well as the theory and practice of effective reporting and writing. In Journalism 125, you will practice sourcing and writing news stories in ways that are compelling and useful to your audience. Journalism 135 teaches writing in a narrative nonfiction format. Other courses afford the opportunity to write for the student newspaper, The Triton Review.

Journalism offers career opportunities in reporting, editing, layout and design, photography, and business management. The research, communication, analysis, and composition skills you learn through journalism can transfer to a variety of other pursuits as well.
