The Department of Journalism prepares students for positions in journalism and other media related fields through rigorous attention to writing and information-gathering, multimedia storytelling and engagement with the liberal arts and sciences that inform issues of the day. The program emphasizes real-world training through the coverage of public affairs issues locally and regular reporting trips abroad, as well as support of co-curricular activities such as campus media. Faculty members are award-winning journalists and scholars in the field. The program also exposes the broader CCSU community to the importance of a free press to democracy.
The BA in Journalism is a 40-credit program that requires all student to gain training across media, including taking photographs and shooting and editing video, even as they specialize in print/online or broadcast journalism. With the assistance of an adviser, students are able to customize their degree to include experiences that will give them an edge when competing for internships and jobs. Examples of customization might include a focus in sports or environmental reporting, or special capstone projects intended to give students an immersive experience reporting an in-depth project.
