Live for the news

Are you the type of person who always knows what’s going on? Do you have the urge to dig deeper into the news, whether it’s happening in your hometown, your home state or halfway across the globe? If you answered yes, chances are you’ve also been thinking about a career in journalism.

At SFA, we know modern journalism is in a constant state of flux. We prepare our students for current and emerging forms of media to ensure they’re ready for a career in journalism in the 21st century.

Traditional careers and new frontiers

Today’s journalism degree can open doors to a wide variety of exciting careers. As a journalist, you can choose a traditional career path like working as a magazine or newspaper reporter or an on-air news anchor – or you can run your own news-gathering website. There’s no limit to what you can do with your degree.

The experience you need, on and off campus

At SFA, students do more than just sit in classrooms. We encourage our students to get out and get involved in hands-on experiences that help ensure you get the most out of your time with us.

Internships help you get the real-world experience you need while still in school and can be a great way to help you land your first job. For those who love to rattle cages and shake up the establishment, our student-run newspaper, the Pine Log, is a great place to start.

Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in mass communication with concentration in journalism

Study journalism as it applies to the world of today, and be prepared for all possible forms of mass media, current and emerging. Students’ coursework will familiarize them with feature writing, editing, working in a converged newsroom and more.
