Journalism & Digital Mass Media

The Journalism & Digital Mass Media Major equips students to use mass communication principles and media technology to impact culture through a variety of channels. Students are prepared for strategic positions in media, news and information, and communication.

Students will benefit from Johnson’s accreditation, affordable tuition, and an experienced and engaged faculty passionate about each student’s success. Both the Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts degree coursework integrate a Bible & Theology Core and Arts & Sciences Core. Bachelor of Arts degrees usually include 12 or more credits of foreign language study, while Bachelor of Science degrees include additional Natural Science (like Biology and Science Concepts) and Social and Behavioral Science courses (like Psychology and Economics). Students also apply their theoretical knowledge in real-world settings through professional internships. A Mass Communication minor is also offered.

When students complete this program, they will be able to do the following:

  • Understand the social, legal, and historical impact of mass communication on culture.
  • Produce well-written, error-free stories, conduct interviews, and produce digitally enhanced material.
  • Produce broadcast and Web video and audio content.
