Journalists find sources, conduct interviews and gather the information needed to produce informative and interactive news, feature stories and documentaries for TV, podcasts, radio, mobile applications, digital and print media. You can even use your minor and electives to specialize in certain areas, such as sports or politics. At Quinnipiac, you’ll take courses that will provide a solid foundation for reporting, writing and storytelling. We’ll also teach you to become proficient with video cameras, non-linear editing and producing software in our state-of-the-art communications center.
Quinnipiac’s proximity to premier media centers in Connecticut, New York and Massachusetts provides numerous internship opportunities. Many alumni work at such places as CBS News, ABC News, ESPN, the Oxygen channel, Major League Baseball Productions, NBC Universal, NBC News, CNN and Fox News. You also can intern at Quinnipiac’s own radio station AM1220 WQUN. There are even internship opportunities in other countries.
Real-world experience can be acquired right on campus by working on the Quinnipiac Chronicle newspaper and website, the Q30 campus TV station, WQAQ student radio, and with the Quinnipiac Bobcats Sports Network.
