About

Students attracted to journalism are interested in becoming strong communicators and telling the stories of others. Journalists must be able to gather and interpret information and package and disseminate that information to their audiences. This Journalism program is offered by The Ohio State University.

Overview

This requires a broad liberal arts education coupled with specific training in the techniques of writing, reporting and editing. In addition, multimedia training is necessary to be competitive in the changing landscape of the field of journalism. These basic skills must be carried out with an understanding of the society within which the journalist is working, the needs of that society and the consequences of the distribution of information within that society.

Possible careers

Students of the Journalism program from The Ohio State University will prepare for a career in public affairs journalism in both traditional and emerging media. Students with a bachelor’s degree in journalism seek employment as multimedia journalists with media organizations, such as news stations, radio, magazines, newspapers and interactive information vendors. The undergraduate degree in journalism is also excellent preparation for further study in mass communication and fields such as law or public policy.

Programme Structure

Course Overview:

  • Journalism students complete 32 credit hours in public affairs journalism. Public Affairs Journalism teaches students how to investigate and disseminate news. 
  • Students are required to complete courses in reporting, interviewing, news writing and feature writing, as well as more interactive journalism such as blogging, micro blogging, social media and multimedia. 
  • Our multimedia focus prepares students to integrate this training with the multimedia skills necessary for packaging news stories with word, still photo, audio, and video. 
  • To emphasize applied learning, students are provided extensive skills training, further reinforced through the completion of a journalism practicum, completion of a minor and completion of a required news-related internship.
