Student Work

The quality of the Journalism & Media Production sequence has earned students recognition from media professionals nationwide. Students recently won awards in television spot news, non-deadline news, and television documentary categories in a regional competition sponsored by the Society of Professional Journalists.

Live Sports

JMP offers students the opportunity to create a live sports production. In conjunction with WSU Athletics students are tasked with directing, producing, and play-by-play for select web streams. These web streams provide students LIVE hands-on experience. Below is a sample of some of their work.

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.
