Both in the classroom and through co-curricular media involvement, you will practice hands-on reporting skills in writing, audio, video, photography, and web.
- Reporting, writing, and producing news stories in first semester with one-on-one faculty classroom and co-curricular mentoring
- Access to Caldwell Hall’s second floor Burlingame Communication Center, which houses media classrooms, software, and studios
- Campus and community weekly student newspaper, full-time, FCC-licensed non-commercial radio station, and cable-access TV channel
- Experience covering breaking news, feature stories, athletics, and community events happening on Muskingum’s campus and in the New Concord region
- Opportunities for student leadership paid positions and off-campus internships
Experiencing journalism in all forms of reporting and production prepares our graduates for the ever-changing media landscape and for successful careers in traditional and non-traditional media.
