Visual Journalism Emphasis
The journalism department offers a focus on visual journalism for students interested in photography and visual journalism. In this emphasis students learn about classic photography principles as well as cutting edge technology. As the media moves into the new century students will focus their skills on digital technology and development. This emphasis will allow students to diversify their skills and portfolios and become even more valuable to potential employers.
