Bachelor of Science in Mass Communications - Journalism
To be a journalist, you have to be passionate about researching, fact finding, meeting people, grabbing images and then writing, editing and telling the story.

If you are looking for a university with experienced faculty, an affordable and quality degree, then you are in the right place! Journalism students have real world resources at their fingertips in order to build a strong demo-reel for when they enter their career. Students can draw from the AP news wire using the ENPS platform, write for The Spectator, a student run on-line newspaper and report on WHSN 89.3-FM, the campus radio station, or the NESCom Broadcast Network (NBN).
