If you’re curious about the world, enjoy interviewing, and aren’t afraid to dig for information, consider Taylor’s Multimedia Journalism major. The Multimedia Journalism major will prepare you to craft messages with consumer insight, Christian ethics, and passion. You’ll learn to tell stories in as many ways as possible—not just through printed words, but also through design, photos, audio, and video.
Multimedia Journalism students take communications and writing classes, such as news and investigative reporting, feature and magazine writing, web writing, scriptwriting, creative nonfiction writing, business and technical writing, and public relations campaign production. You’ll practice multimedia storytelling, craft informed social media campaigns, and learn print and web design using Adobe Creative Suite.
All Multimedia Journalism BA/BS majors choose one of five concentrations:
You’ll have the opportunity to write, design, and edit for The Echo, our award-winning student newspaper, and Ilium, the school yearbook. Multimedia Journalism majors can earn up to six academic credits by working on The Echo or Ilium. These roles provide students experience planning editions, meeting tight deadlines, and doing real-time reporting. Students can also work closely with the Lead Generation team to produce content for magazine, web, and email communication.
Every Multimedia Journalism student completes an internship in an area of journalism or media writing with mentorship by an industry professional. Seniors also complete a professional portfolio that is showcased alongside their other work at a senior show.
Accepted students who demonstrate an exceptional journalism ability are eligible to apply. Application deadline is April 1. Reward amount varies.Apply Now
Prepare to craft messages and tell stories, not just through words, but also through design, photos, audio, and video. The Multimedia Journalism minor would be a great supplementary study to any Business or Communication degree.
Multimedia Journalism BA/BS majors choose a concentration in Business Media, Digital Media, News Media, Sports Media, or Visual Media.
