If you have a curious spirit and interest in sharing stories on media and social channels, MSUM’s Multimedia Journalism major is for you. You’ll develop a foundation of journalistic principles and ethics; skills in writing, reporting, editing and publishing visual and written content; and learn to collaborate with teams to publish award-winning newspapers, blogs and online magazines.
You’ll get much more from professors than red marks on a page. They will sit down with you to give your writing the individualized attention it deserves. This leads to elevated professional writing skills on a dramatic scale.
The Marcil Center for Innovative Journalism, housed in the School of Communication and Journalism, gives students the opportunity for scholarships, apprenticeships and enrichment programs, including conferences and professional collaboration.
The Multimedia Journalism faculty have worked in the media profession before becoming professors, and they’re eager to share their firsthand experience with you.
The interdisciplinary nature of this degree gives you a look into the many facets of mass communication, including videography, photography, writing, editing, production, design, social media and more.
You’ll get to know your professors on a first-name basis and interact with them as professionals. Because of these working relationships, your professors are great resources for references and letters of recommendation during your job search.
