Journalism is about finding and telling accurate stories that matter.
It shapes public opinion and helps people understand the political and social world.
Journalism encourages open-mindedness and demands objectivity so the public can weigh options and develop informed opinions about world issues.

Being a Journalism student means developing advanced skills in writing and editing, as well as in presenting information in a compelling way and making sense of complex issues and events.

They will ask important questions and deliver facts and details in ways that shed light on otherwise complicated situations.
Students will also learn to get to the root of a story and inform the public on things they need to know.
