"The professors give us insight from real-life experiences."
The field of journalism may be changing, but the need for courageous, truthful, talented journalists has never been greater. Today’s journalists have more options than ever for telling important stories.
Trevecca’s Multimedia Journalism program prepares students to cover stories in a variety of media. Courses are taught in a state-of-the-art communication lab and students have a chance to immediately begin working on a variety of student publications including a newspaper, a magazine and two online publications. Students also have internship opportunities in a variety of local media outlets and may also participate in the Washington Journalism Seminar, a semester-long program in Washington, DC provided through the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities.
What our students say
"I love the size of the journalism program. You get a lot of one-on-one time with the professor who sits down and edits your stories with you. It helps your writing skills to improve greatly."
Nadia Smith '16
"Trevecca’s journalism program prepared me in every way. I have a job at a daily newspaper, my dream job, because of how I was prepared as a professional while at Trevecca. The smaller staff size of the campus newspaper, TrevEchoes, required that I take more responsibility. I learned how to write, follow tough stories, and ask hard questions, all while working with an understanding administration who wanted to see me succeed. Because of TNU, I’m well on my way to doing just that."
"At first, radio speaking seemed really intriguing to me. This led me to a journalism class, which made me realize my passion for reporting. I really enjoy being able to tell peoples' stories. Studying Multimedia Journalism here has prepared me for what's ahead in the journalism field. Many of the professors in the department have worked in the career field they teach, so they are able to give us insight from real-life experiences."
