The Journalism program prepares media literate, digitally adept graduates to pursue a broad range of careers in news organizations, social media, corporate communication, digital content creation and more. By blending theoretical perspectives with hands-on learning, the program immerses students in writing and editing, research, interviewing, objective reporting and multi-media storytelling. Students benefit from a mix of journalism, digital media and communication courses, as well as opportunities to apply their knowledge in student media outlets including the 1851 Chronicle print and digital newspaper, Lasell Community Television (LCTV) and WLAS radio. The program culminates with students completing at least one required internship and a capstone experience in which they develop a digital portfolio to showcase their undergraduate projects and skills.
By planning early in consultation with an academic advisor, students may be able to reduce the time it takes to complete a bachelor’s degree in Journalism to 3 or 3½ years.
The Double Laser Program offers students the opportunity to earn an accelerated Master's degree in as little as one year after graduation, while also saving up to 30% on graduate school tuition.
