Why Major in English with a Concentration in Journalism?

Every occupation depends on the ability to write about a certain event or person, and to do it well. A BA in English teaches you to pursue research interests, to ask challenging questions, and to solve problems in collaboration with others. A concentration in Journalism teaches you the power and possibilities of the word. It provides you with the capacity to report the news truthfully, and it demands that you develop a high degree of sensitivity to the cultural and political facets of the world. Expect to research deeply, interview perceptively, and write on deadline. Expect to learn how to tell stories well. You’ll get practice in crafting, regardless of the form that your work takes: blog, broadcast, or book.
