UCA students majoring in Journalism have the option of choosing one of four emphasis: 1) print, 2) broadcast, 3) online media, or 4) Mass Communication Research in preparation for a wide range of exciting and rewarding career opportunities. Students enjoy small classes and close guidance by a core of dedicated faculty with professional experience in the newspaper, magazine, television and online media industries. Digital technology has revolutionized the media. High tech equipment is now better, cheaper, and more abundant than it has ever been, and its effect on the broadcast, print and online industries has been dramatic. The number of networks and channels, online sites and opportunities for convergence media is increasing, which means more reporting, writing and programming jobs for professionals who understand this new technology.
Majors gain valuable field experience by working on the staff of the campus television station, the weekly school newspaper or at the university yearbook. Students also produce news and feature stories for local media. These first-hand experiences serve as prelude to a senior-year internship in the commercial world for all journalism majors.UCA is preparing students for careers as reporters, writers, producers, technicians, designers and managers.
