Department of Journalism

The Quinnipiac undergraduate program in journalism focuses on the principles and practices of news writing and reporting across multiple platforms in a perpetually evolving media landscape. Required courses provide a strong foundation in writing, reporting and diverse storytelling skills.  

The wide range of elective courses enables students to focus on a specific medium (such as television), or news subject (such as sports), or take courses across platforms based on their interests and career goals.

The program culminates in a capstone course during which students demonstrate their acquired knowledge and execute a sustained investigative project under the guidance of a faculty adviser.
