Stories change the world, but who will tell them? The Convergent Journalism major at IWU prepares students as effective storytellers in the 21st century: online, on-the-air through words, pictures and sound.
Choose from concentrations in Broadcast, Multimedia or Print/Online journalism. The digital tools for the next generation of newsgathering are joined with critical thinking, solid writing, clear judgment and ethical principles.
