The Master’s University’s Journalism program revolves around other two key principles:

  • Journalism in all forms must be characterized by, above all, a love for and a commitment to truth and accuracy.
  • As followers of Jesus Christ, Christians are uniquely equipped to discern and communicate truth.

TMU Journalism students learn by doing – both on and off campus. The Communication Department newspaper – The Mane – is one of several platforms for students to learn what it means to work in the field of professional journalism. Reporters, writers (news, sports, features), editors, photographers, webmasters, and graphic designers converge to produce a print edition that publishes regularly throughout the year and an online edition that updates in real time.
