Field of study

There’s only one profession specifically protected in the U.S. Constitution: "Congress shall make no law … abridging … the freedom of the press."

The Founders understood journalists had a critical role to play for the U.S. to survive past infancy. What was true then is true now. Getting at the truth – the essence of journalism – is crucial for democracies to thrive.

In the 21st century, there have never been more ways to get the truth out to the people. The rise of digital and social media gives everyone a platform to tell stories with words, photos and video.

Students who pursue Journalism can expect to improve their ability to write clearly and concisely, think critically, solve problems, work together as a team and meet deadlines. These skills are sought by employers across a wide range of professions.

Journalism courses are offered as part of the requirements of the Associate of Arts in Liberal Arts degree, or may be taken as required or elective courses to complete other degrees. 

Students interested in pursuing a degree at ASU, NAU or UA should meet with journalism faculty to plan their course of study using the appropriate transfer guide.
