About this program

B.S. in Mass Communications – Journalism

The Journalism concentration prepares students with the skills and knowledge that journalists need to ethically report on stories and craft them into compelling pieces. Students learn how to report stories using multiple platforms including print, radio, TV and the Web. Not only are the essentials of interviewing, investigating and reporting taught, but students will also learn the skills to capture and edit audio and video. As an integral part of the journalism concentration students will receive hands-on experience interviewing community leaders and writing articles for the online campus newspaper, The Spectator. WHSN 89.3-FM, our television newscast, the NESCom Connection, and the NESCom Broadcast Network offer more opportunities to write, report, produce and anchor news. It is built on the goal of educating professional multi-media journalists.

Admission requirements

First-year international applicants must submit official copies of one test that assesses English competency. Husson University accepts the TOEFL (minimum score of 75) or IELTS (minimum score 6). Students who have been studying in a total English immersion environment for two or more years may replace the test of English competency with the SAT or ACT. In addition, after acceptance, students will complete an English and Math Placement Exam prior to class placement. Assessments help to ensure course placements that provide the strongest support for academic success.
