About the Program
Students in the Journalism program of Rutgers University learn the basics of reporting and newswriting, as well as critical analysis of current topics and the way they are presented in the news. They also learn about landmark cases that have shaped journalism, and how to find their niche in the ever-changing landscape of media.
The journalism major and minor are part of a liberal arts education that blends theory and practices. Our courses explore subjects such as the history of journalism, contemporary media, video storytelling, radio news writing and production, and journalism ethics and the law. Advanced courses include narrative or long-form journalism, sports reporting, column writing, as well as multimedia practices and shooting video for news stories. Students also have access to a state-of-the-art Mac lab and audio production studio and the most advanced research software.
Our interns have been placed in all of the major New York City news stations, as well as at newspapers, magazines and online outlets throughout the New York metropolitan area.
