Communication Arts and Journalism, BA

LEARN JOURNALISM IN THE MEDIA CENTER OF THE WORLD

One of the most popular majors on the Westchester Campus, our BA prepares you for a career in print and broadcast journalism, mass communications, or public relations.

With a focus on writing for radio and television news, feature writing, writing for print and electronic media, and news reporting, this program is ideal for those interested in a career in journalism. Instead of reporting from your desk, how about reporting from the field? Students in Professor Maria Luskay’s documentary class travel all over the world to shoot documentaries, which have garnered various awards.

Students also gain real-world experience through internships, which have included Live! with Regis and Kelly, Donna Karan, CBS News, and more. Upon graduation, you will have well-established connections throughout the media industry through our internship program, which is ranked among the top five in the country for placing undergraduates in internships. Graduates of the program have enjoyed careers at NBC Sports, Live with Kelly and Michael, Bobbi Brown, A&E Television Networks, and more.
