Department Objectives

The Major in Journalism is designed to produce intelligent, thoughtful, and versatile journalists and writers who engage citizens in a democratic society, helping them make informed decisions about their communities. The Minor in Science Journalism has the same foundations and focuses on the communication of scientific topics. Above all, journalism is a rigorous intellectual activity with professional standards for gathering, processing, and disseminating information.

The Department of Journalism offers a professional education that combines writing and production workshops, requiring students to complete real-world assignments according to professional and ethical standards, with lectures and seminars that critically examine the social and political contexts in which journalism is produced. The programs offered by the Department of Journalism are designed to prepare graduates for the English‑language media.
