What is Journalism at WVU like?
Are you curious? Are you interested in current events or passionate about advocating for social change? Or maybe you’re creative and like storytelling — verbally or visually. Journalists connect people to the world through print, web, social media, television and radio.
Journalism is a career and a calling. It’s telling real stories about real people that impact lives. Whether it is a breaking news story, a sports story or a documentary, journalists are charged with seeking the truth and making it known.
Through our flexible and hands-on curriculum, you will learn to write, report and produce content across media platforms; engage with a variety of audiences; and gain valuable real-world experience by working with actual clients.
In addition to our fundamental Journalism courses, you will also have the opportunity to take a variety of special topics courses, such as adventure travel writing, data journalism and visualization, health communications, magazine design, social media strategy, sports journalism, virtual and augmented reality, and environmental journalism.
