On July 1, 2014, the School of Journalism will join the IU Media School, which will be housed in the College of Arts and Sciences. This move will allow the united faculties of journalism, telecommunications, and communication and culture to combine their research expertise and passion for teaching with top-notch shared facilities to meet the changes presented by the rapid evolution of journalism, television and other forms of communication in the digital media era.
As the impact of new media continues to reshape a variety of disciplines and practices, including print journalism, online entertainment, virtual reality and game design, the journalism program in the IU Media School will provide a locus for exploring and assessing new applications for the fundamental skills of good reporting and writing. Students pursuing the Bachelor of Arts in Journalism will follow a curriculum that recognizes the increasing intersection of media skills and platforms and that prepares its students to work in a range of positions and environments. Some of those positions include reporting and editing in a variety of media, from print to online to broadcast; working in strategic communications, including public relations and advertising; and working in visual communications as graphic designers and photojournalists.
