Multimedia Journalism

Multimedia Journalism is a concentration of the Communication major

What an incredibly exciting time to be interested in journalism! The newspaper industry is trying to figure out how to make money in the new digital economy, but one thing is certain: journalism will not go away. For students studying journalism it is important to choose a program that embraces the changing dynamics of journalism and prepares students for the uncertain future.

The Curry College multimedia journalism concentration immerses students in all facets of digital news gathering. Students will write for a traditional paper, but also learn how to put stories on the web, enhance them with podcasts and video reports, and even blog about the latest reporting "scoop."

Curry's faculty includes professors with decades of journalism experience, from major network affiliates to newspapers like The Boston Globe and multimedia producing experiences from powerhouses like Washingtonpost.com. We have created a seamless convergence with our newspaper, radio, and television concentrations to make sure our students are ready for every opportunity the digital future may bring.

The "old" skill set of putting together a traditional paper will not be left undone. Under the supervision of the journalism faculty, The Currier Times provides students with hands-on experience in production of an entirely student-written newspaper.  Multimedia Journalism students also contribute to the Currier Times Online (CurrierTimes.net)

Students gain experience in reporting, editing, proofreading, layout, and design, along with advertising and business operations.
