Introduction to Web Journalism Emphasis

The web journalism emphasis integrates web skills and traditional journalism skills of writing, reporting, and designing to prepare a new generation of journalists.

Aiming to keep up with the cutting-edge online technology and inherit journalism traditions, the emphasis trains students in all the essential journalistic areas: reporting, writing, designing and computing. Students of web journalism explore different news platforms and learn how to produce web-ready news stories and develop news websites.

With more and more news and non-news organizations committed to online presence,  the demand for trained web journalists keeps rising. Web journalism graduates have been employed with a wide range of companies and organizations such as graphic design companies, news organizations, government departments, web development companies, non-profit organizations and even hospitals.

The web journalism emphasis meets the challenges of the digital era and prepares a new generation of well-rounded journalists.
