The Department of Journalism at UW Oshkosh provides students with many opportunities.
Students working toward degrees in journalism must be able to present their work with confidence. Presentation and design skills are incorporated into many assignments students will complete in the journalism program’s courses.
Advertising students can take the Ad Copy Layout and Strategic Campaigns in Advertising courses. Public Relations students can take the PR Techniques and PR Campaigns courses. In these classes, majors complete creative campaign projects often designed by professionals.
After completing the pieces the student is often required to present them to peers and receive feedback. Journalism majors go on to use these skills in competition courses and in internships with media companies around the Oshkosh area.
