Journalism & Media Production

Department of Journalism and Media Production

The Journalism & Media Production major focuses on the reporting and editing processes, current mass media issues, and the legal and historical precedents that have shaped the field. In the lab, students are exposed to digital editing technologies designed to help storytellers be more precise in reporting and editing across all media platforms.

Beyond the Classroom

Students can participate in numerous opportunities that extend the student learning experience into the professional world. Students can manage and write for The Daily Evergreen, a daily print newspaper. There is also the Murrow News Service, which extends student reporting into the professional market through two Pacific Northwest news bureaus. In addition, students meet many news media professionals by participating in the WSU chapter of the Society for Professional Journalists and the Online News Association.

WSU’s Journalism & Media Production program provides “real world” experience with audio and video production via both studio and field training in their courses and WSU’s Cable 8 Productions.
