Multimedia Journalism

Major/Minor

Reporting with Integrity

If you’re curious about the world, enjoy interviewing, and aren’t afraid to dig for information, consider Taylor’s Multimedia Journalism major. The Multimedia Journalism major will prepare you to craft messages with consumer insight, Christian ethics, and passion. Our Journalism program teaches you to tell stories in as many ways as possible—not just through printed words, but also through design, photos, audio, and video.

Multimedia Journalism students take a variety of communications and writing classes, such as news and investigative reporting, feature and magazine writing, web writing, scriptwriting, creative nonfiction writing, business and technical writing, and public relations campaign production. Our majors also practice multimedia storytelling, begin crafting informed social media campaigns, and learn print and web design using Adobe Creative Suite.

Seize Every Opportunity

You'll have the opportunity to write, design, and edit for The Echo, our award-winning student newspaper, and Ilium, the school yearbook. Multimedia Journalism majors can earn up to six academic credits by working on The Echo or Ilium. These roles provide students experience planning editions, meeting tight deadlines, and doing real-time reporting. Students can also work closely with the Lead Generation team to produce content for magazine, web, and email communication. Every Multimedia Journalism student completes an internship in an area of journalism or media writing with mentorship by an industry professional. Seniors also complete a professional portfolio that is showcased alongside their other work at a senior show.

Prepare to craft messages and tell stories, not just through words, but also through design, photos, audio, and video. The Multimedia Journalism minor would be a great supplementary study to any Business or Communication degree.

When going into an interview, I learned to have questions in mind and make sure my angle is clear for the story. If I do bad reporting, then the story will be poorly written. So, when I'm assigned a story that I don't know much about, doing research and making sure I have good questions is critical.
