Overview

At Journalism from Abilene Christian University you’ll get experience writing and creating messages for print, television, radio, and the web.

The option for journalism majors to complete a Bachelor of Arts journalism degree makes it possible for them to complete a double major if the other degree is in a BA program, for example in English, history, political science or fine arts.

Especially important to this career path is a hands-on experience, and students pursuing the bachelor of science in journalism have plenty of opportunities for real-world learning, including work in the JMC Network's converged media lab.
