Journalists read documents, observe meetings and events, and interview people to gather information that is important to the general public. Then they figure out how to present it so people can understand and use it in their everyday lives. Aside from the pressure of meeting deadlines, journalists spend long hours gathering information and writing.

Most journalists are staff members at newspapers or television and radio stations. But some are freelancers -- self-employed professionals who gather and package news for many different organizations.

The B.A. degree program in journalism is designed for students interested in pursuing careers in print, broadcast and online journalism, photojournalism, public relations, and corporate communications. The program also will meet the needs of those who wish to teach journalism at the high school level or to pursue a postgraduate degree in journalism or mass communications.
