Journalism is a professionally oriented major that
prepares you for careers in the mass media, most especially in
journalistic media, where storytelling is conducted via audio,
visual and networking means as well as through text. Students take classes that teach them the basics of writing and reporting and that help them develop the breadth of knowledge they will need to thrive in digital and other media environments.
Journalism students routinely are placed in internships at The Seattle Times, seattlepi.com, Seattle Weekly, KCTS 9, KIRO Radio, The News Tribune, and ESPN. Journalism majors are taught and mentored by internationally-recognized journalists. They have won national journalism awards, taught as Fulbright Scholars in England and Latin America, and all have turned their journalism endeavors into books.
Graduates go on to jobs with online publications, newspapers, television stations, newspapers, and documentary makers.
