Journalism, Bachelor of Science



What will I learn?

Journalism is an ideal career for those interested in gathering, reporting and analyzing information - and putting that information into an entertaining, easily understood format. It is a competitive field that has changed dramatically over the last few years and is expected to continue changing as new technology is introduced.

Journalists play a vital role in how the public perceives local, national and international events. Careers in journalism require people who are independent, flexible, creative and highly innovative. Successful journalists are exceptional writers who are highly motivated and detail oriented.

You can prepare for these exciting opportunities by earning your Bachelor of Science degree in Journalism from St. John’s University. Offered by the College of Professional Studies, the program prepares students for careers in all facets of Journalism, including print, broadcast and the Internet.

Competition for jobs is fierce in large metropolitan and national newspapers, broadcast stations and networks and magazines. Talented writers who can handle highly specialized scientific or technical subjects will have an advantage and St. John’s can provide you with that advantage.
