The multi-platform journalism track prepares students for careers in journalism and mass communication. Journalistic writing, visual and online communication make up the core of the professional program. Students are provided a solid foundation in reporting and editing news for television, radio, online and in print. Through electives, students can focus on a specific area such as broadcast journalism for television and radio, print journalism for newspaper and magazines, and online journalism.
In the mass communication program, you will complete a departmental four-course core that provides a foundation for success in a variety of media fields. As a major or minor, you must earn a grade of ‘C’ or better in each mass communication course and successfully pass the required departmental competency writing and production tests.
You will engage in a variety of experiences inside and outside the classroom that will prepare you for a career in the mass communication field. You are encouraged to participate in the department’s co-curricular activities and to complete at least one industry-related internship.
In addition to main campus delivery, students will find online and The Woodlands Center campus options. These delivery options may provide greater flexibility to students living outside of the Huntsville area or who have limited time available.
