What will I learn?

The Digital Journalism program will be infused with the spirit of investigative, explanatory journalism, a civic-rooted journalism that will seek to make good on H.L. Mencken's call for journalists to afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted.? Beyond informing the public, the young journalists will seek to engage citizens, create a public debate, and push readers and viewers to be more than mere spectators.

The Bachelor of Arts degree in Digital Journalism in the English Department is a rigorous, 12-course program designed to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and experience needed to understand and take part in today's quickly changing, digital journalism world. The major includes a large focus on ethics, consistent with Fairfield's mission, and a multidisciplinary approach that will draw on courses offered by other departments at Fairfield. It is inspired by the eloquentia perfecta approach to which the English Department aspires, consistent with Jesuit ideals.
