Program Distinctions

raiderview-3The study of journalism at LWC is a unique experience designed to fulfill the personal and professional needs of all students. Unlike some academic environments where students may find themselves lost and forgotten within a large department, those studying journalism at LWC receive individual attention and specialized instruction needed to succeed in the contemporary media environment. A special emphasis is placed on the practical application of writing, photography, and media design.  Students also have an opportunity to gain experience and build a portfolio with RaiderView, the student newspaper and online news magazine, and Orpheus, the campus literary journal. In addition, students are encouraged to participate in professional internships.

Why choose Journalism?

The field of journalism is undergoing an exciting change as the delivery of news moves almost exclusively into the Digital Age. As jobs in the traditional media are phased out, new and different opportunities are emerging. Students with degrees in journalism can expect a wide variety of jobs in the professional arena. The strength of the degree lies in its flexibility in the contemporary job market. Candidates may pursue specialized roles in fields such as journalism, public relations, business, information technology, education, corporate communication, marketing and promotion, advertising, and many other areas. In fact, careers in communication are considered to be one of the fastest growing areas of employment to date. A degree in the journalism emphasis can also provide an excellent foundation for graduate studies.
