The Five-Year BJ/MA Photojournalism model instructs students in still and moving images and audio, while augmenting their understanding of the history, theory and skills of photojournalism and principles and practice of visual editing. It assumes some class experience in Broadcast, Convergence, Documentary or Photojournalism. Students learn to create, edit and present compelling visual story-telling projects in a variety of mediums, including print, online, social media and apps. The program’s essential element remains understanding the power of image, while embracing all technologies in presentation. Students will be prepared for careers as photojournalists.
