With electronics and technology dominating the front lines of reporting, journalism students don't go to college looking for careers in just print media. The Journalism program at NCC focuses on newspaper, magazine, television, radio and internet reporting, as well as photography, multimedia production and more. These are the skills that editors and businesses want for the 21st century.
Students of the program also become critically aware of the diverse functions of the media (entertainment, informational, propagandist, ideological) and how they affect society and culture.
All Journalism students are expected to participate in the college newspaper, The Commuter. There are also opportunities during the semester to engage in discussions with reporters and bloggers both inside and outside the news media. These events, which are usually held in a community room and are open to everyone on campus, are sponsored by the Journalism program.
