These programs provide students with professional training along two axes. The emphasis in the digital production workshops (radio, TV, print and on-line) is on practical skills, with newsroom standards applied to all assignments and activities. Students work in "live" news situations, covering news events just like working professional journalists. These workshops are complemented by seminars and lecture courses that focus on why journalism has meaning and value in a democratic society. This blend of theory and practice gives students the foundation they need for a journalism career.
Students are encouraged to take advantage of the internship and coop opportunities that the department provides.
