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.
As Multimedia Journalism major, you will have the opportunity to write, design, and edit for our award-winning student newspaper and school yearbook. These roles provide students experience planning editions, meeting tight deadlines, and doing real-time reporting. Multimedia Journalism majors can earn up to six academic credits by working on The Echo or Ilium. 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.
High school students entering their sophomore or junior year can spend a week experiencing what it’s like to work as a sports writer, magazine writer, newspaper or TV reporter, photojournalist, or professional blogger at Taylor University’s Multimedia Journalism Academy. Camp is June 7-12, 2020 on Taylor's campus in Upland, Indiana.
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.
