By providing that type of well-rounded education, interaction and opportunity, Journalism Studies at Texas A&M will be in the forefront of preparing journalists for the future.
A 21st Century Approach to Journalism Education
Journalism Studies provides a background in reporting, from interviewing to on-line records searches, and in writing, from deadline news stories to longer analytical and feature pieces.
Video production for the web is an integral part of news writing in our program, along with the opportunity for specialized, advanced writing classes in political reporting, literary nonfiction, arts and entertainment journalism, and magazine writing. Students also get in-depth experience in the field of new media, particularly vlogging.
Students wrap up with an internship in the field and a senior seminar that couples their journalism studies with their broader education in the liberal arts. Our students have landed internships across the country, from the public radio station in Los Angeles to a wide variety of publications in Texas to a ski magazine in Vermont to the Washington Bureau of Hearst Newspapers.
