What We Offer

Students at the Journalism School have many opportunities to learn the skills needed to excel in broadcast journalism and tell stories in video or audio. Both video and audio classes are core components of the M.S. program in which students work on deadline pieces as well as on longer stories. Students can learn on­-air skills, take a radio or podcasting class, experiment with virtual reality and hone the techniques that are essential to working in a digital newsroom.

M.S. candidates can also apply to the third­-semester Documentary Program, designed to train students in the art of documentary filmmaking.

Explore our degree programs.




Our broadcast classes allow students to develop and expand their reporting, production and storytelling skills in both audio and video. 

Please note: The classes listed here represent recent offerings at the Journalism School. Choices vary each semester depending on faculty availability and other considerations. Classes described now may change or be dropped to make room for new additions.
