Journalism Degree in Nebraska
Cover a manhunt of escaped convicts. Create your own New York City public relations company. Become a press secretary for the United States Senate. Climb aboard the train and shoot video for the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. Or work for famous people, such as David Letterman.
Doane alums have done all of those things, and more. The Journalism and Media major prepares you to gather news and how to communicate and distribute information in all formats - broadcast, online and print. Plus, you will have the freedom to expand your learning beyond Journalism and Media by completing a double major or a minor in your choice of area.
And if you enroll in Doane's Journalism and Media courses, you will have opportunities to travel to college media conventions across the country, produce television and radio shows, publish the student newspaper
, 1014 Magazine and the website, and even report on U.S. Presidential Inaugurations in Washington, D.C. And put it all on our Doane Student Media app.
You will enjoy hands-on learning while working for on-campus media. As a bonus, you can get paid if you're in a supervisory job such as editor, station manager or multimedia coordinator.
