Print & Digital Journalism offers courses in writing, editing, photography, reporting, digital storytelling, ethics and law. The concentration maintains a focus on fundamental skills, such as clear and concise writing, evidence-based reporting, deadline orientation and editing while enhancing student knowledge and experience in the practices of production and publishing in a converged digital environment. We emphasize platform integration throughout our curriculum, culminating in the senior capstone experience, Bulldog Online Newsroom.
Our graduates are immediately competitive applicants for positions at newspapers, magazines and digital publications in the state and around the country and also obtain news-related jobs in universities, business and industrial relations, extension service and government. P&DJ alumni are employed by diverse publications such as the Los Angeles Times, the Houston Chronicle, Mississippi Today, Sports Illustrated, the Tennessean, the Columbus Commercial-Dispatch, the Starkville Daily News, and many others.
We offer a variety of internship experiences including local, regional and national media outlets.
