About this program


To be a journalist, you have to be passionate about researching, fact finding, meeting people, grabbing images and then writing, editing and telling the story. Students in the Journalism program take classes in writing and reporting, web reporting and video and radio production to prepare themselves to be multi-skilled in this field.

The New England School of Communications provides you a training ground to set you apart. Journalism students have real world resources at their fingertips in order to build a strong demo-reel for when they enter their career. Students can draw from the AP news wire using the ENPS platform, write for The Spectator, a student run on-line newspaper and report on WHSN 89.3, or the NESCom Broadcast Network (NBN).

Admission requirements

In addition to the admission requirements outlined in the application for admission, 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.

For more information about admission requirements, please visit the university website.
