What will I learn?

The Sacramento State Journalism program educates its students in ethical, accurate, and compassionate storytelling. We engage our community using new technology and innovative methods in order to enlighten the public and monitor the powerful. Our students become committed and versatile professionals with a strong background in both journalism theory and practice.

Sacramento State's program emphasizes research, writing and editing for interactive media, and other courses necessary to prepare students for success in media-related jobs; it also includes courses that critically examine media as an institution.

Journalism majors write The State Hornet, a weekly print newspaper and daily multimedia publication.

A journalism degree prepares students for a variety of careers and graduate studies. Graduates work as journalists in a diverse range of media, as public relations representatives, and as communications staff for government agencies, non-profits, and other organizations.
