Majors and Minors in Journalism

The Journalism Program offers practical training in the context of a liberal arts and humanities education. Students have the option of completing a BA in Journalism, or a Journalism minor.

The Journalism Program introduces students to the rapidly changing world of innovative media technology, such as computer assisted reporting, use of the Internet, and online journalism. In addition, the Program, through coursework and internships, prepares students to consider careers in the mass media beyond newspapers and broadcast news media -- cybermedia, magazines, governmental public information, public relations, freelance writing, and book publishing, to name just a few.

The Program's Website (presently undergoing renovation) regularly publishes outstanding student work produced in the Journalism classes. Though not officially associated with UAlbany student media, the Program encourages students to participate on the ASP newspaper , WCDB Radio , and the Student Voice magazine, as well as in the Student Association for Communication.
