Description:In this program, students prepare to work as professional journalists while developing media skills that are transferrable to other professions.

Students learn within a hands-on environment, where they hone their skills as storytellers by producing a news website, a current affairs magazine, radio shows and TV productions. Adapting to the new realities of journalism, students learn to use social and mobile media both to tell stories and to converse with an audience.
