Journalism

Major, Minor

Learn to use media to tell compelling stories with images and words. Develop a solid understanding of the ethics and roles of journalism in the United States, while learning the tools to practice in a variety of media.

Students complete a year-long, self-designed senior capstone project, and many participate in student-run media outlets, including the print and digital editions of The Pacific Index student newspaper and the Pacific University Media Arts (PUMA) club. Some study abroad for a semester at York St. John University in York, England.

Our digital media lab features graphic design, illustration, web design, digital audio and video production hardware and software.
