Journalism - Program Distinctions

The study of journalism at LWC is a unique experience designed to fulfill the personal and professional needs of all students. Unlike some academic environments where students may find themselves lost and forgotten within a large department, those studying journalism at LWC receive individual attention and specialized instruction needed to succeed in the contemporary media environment. A special emphasis is placed on the practical application of writing, photography, and media design. Students also have an opportunity to gain experience and build a portfolio with RaiderView, the student newspaper and online news magazine, and Orpheus, the campus literary journal. In addition, students are encouraged to participate in professional internships.
