The Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Convergence Journalism prepares students for careers in print, broadcast or online journalism, with a broad liberal arts background that includes foreign language study. The BA degree easily combines with a second major in another field - such as English, history or political science, for example - that enables the student to specialize in another area of interest. Double majors can be advantageous when applying to jobs or graduate schools.
This program is designed for students who wish to pursue careers in any professional setting requiring proficiency in and understanding of communication. In today?s digital age, journalism has been reinvented to appeal to an interactive global community. Traditional news systems are in need of ingenuity in an ever-changing world of technology. This emphasis prepares future journalists for diverse careers in television, radio, the web and mobile technologies with a combination of traditional writing tools and audio and video production skills. Students learn the art of digital storytelling while working with the latest cameras and editing technologies.
