A major in Journalism prepares students for jobs in news organizations including broadcast and multimedia reporting, writing, editing and producing. Journalism majors work in photojournalism, video journalism, social media, web and publication design, media innovation and entrepreneurship, and news management.
The certificate will be offered by the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication. Aimed at preparing students for careers in sports writing, sports broadcasting and sports communications, the program will be led by veteran sports journalist Vicki Michaelis, the John Huland Carmical Distinguished Professor in Sports Journalism and Society.
This new certificate, in partnership with the School of Public and International Affairs, educates students in this specialized communications skill set aimed at educating, driving or changing public opinion around a public policy, legislation, political candidates or issues.
