The master’s degree program in broadcast and digital journalism is designed to provide the necessary combination of practical training and theoretical study to prepare students for careers in electronic journalism. All students take required coursework in writing, information gathering and reporting, editing, producing, and anchoring for both traditional and new media platforms. No previous training in broadcasting or journalism is required.
The final on-campus capstone course for the master’s degree involves the production of two daily newscasts. This course is followed by a summer seminar and internship in Washington, D.C. (Students who choose to be involved in the Sports Communications Emphasis may be placed in internships elsewhere.)
This 40-credit program leads to a Master of Science (M.S.) in Broadcast and Digital Journalism. (Students who elect a Sports Communications Emphasis are required to complete 41 credits.)
