Journalism and Digital Media

Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Digital Media


Journalism and Digital Media (JDM) is the most popular major in the Department of Communications, Composition, and Languages. The program is housed in the Mass Communications Center, which contains radio and television studios, multi-track recording equipment, classrooms, and a journalism lab.


JDM students have interned and landed jobs at BET, Radio One, Clear Channel, Time Warner, Fox, Cox Newspapers, Style Network, WDTN-TV, and WHIO-TV. Our majors are making their mark in radio and TV stations, newspapers, magazines, marketing and advertising firms, and graduate schools across the country. 


We suggest you complete four years of high school English and participate in a high school newspaper, radio, or TV station. You will need excellent writing skills in any media enterprise, and we urge you to take every opportunity to enhance your writing. 

It is also vital that you develop a strong work ethic and the ability to meet tight deadlines. You can't be late for the 6 o'clock news!
