Journalism and Media

Campus Location: 
School of Arts and Sciences

Journalism Degree in Nebraska

The Journalism and Media major prepares students to gather news and information and distribute it in all formats - broadcast, online and print. Since the major requires just 33 credits, students have the freedom to expand their learning in traditional liberal arts courses, or double major or minor.

Students enrolled in Doane's Journalism and Media courses will have opportunities to travel to media conventions across the country, produce television and radio shows, publish the student newspaper, 1014 Magazine and website, and even report on U.S. Presidential Inaugurations in Washington, D.C.

Our journalism courses allow students to enjoy hands-on learning while working for on-campus media. As a bonus, students who are editors, station managers and multimedia coordinators get paid for performing those jobs!



Journalism and media majors are required to have at least three internship credits. These opportunities provide hands-on real-world experience for college credit.

Students have had internships at such organizations as:

  • The Lincoln Journal Star 
  • Beatrice Daily News
  • The Crete News
  • Bellevue Leader
  • Sandhills Publishing
  • American Cancer Society
  • Nebraska School Activities Association
  • USA Track & Field
  • Institute on Political Journalism, Washington, D.C.
  • NBC News, New York City
  • White House Communications Department
