About the Major
The Communications/Sports Journalism major is designed to educate students in the fields of print, TV, radio and online journalism so that they may work in the media profession and/or pursue graduate studies in communications. The major seeks not only to provide pre-professional training, but also to educate the student in the traditional liberal arts and humanities.
(Be sure to visit SCStudentMedia.com -- a student-run multimedia news and information website -- to get a true sense of the program's campus presence.)
The major is interdisciplinary, allowing the student to pursue individual interests and providing a broad cultural context for the specialized field of communications/sports journalism. The major constantly weaves together theory and practice. From day one, students are encouraged to dive into "real world journalism" through field experiences, internships, and exposure to professional journalists.For more information about the communications/sports journalism major, contact Professor Martin Dobrow of the Humanities Department at (413) 748-3253 or the Admissions Office at (800) 343-1257.
