Overview

As Christians, we are naturally seekers of truth—an essential quality of a journalist—and at CBU, students learn how to tell the truth, share stories, build communities and uncover injustices in the most powerful ways.

Why study Journalism and New Media at California Baptist University?

  • CBU’s journalism and new media major teaches students how to research, interview, write, edit, design and use a camera—not just in a classroom but in field assignments, student publications and internships. 
  • Students also use social media to engage different audiences and publish stories across a variety of traditional and digital platforms. 
  • The skills students gain are transferrable to many other fields, including marketing, business and politics.
