Whether you prefer reporting the news live or working behind the scenes, the broadcast and digital journalism program at the Newhouse School at Syracuse University helps you develop the news sense and technical skills you need, both on and off the air. You learn to use audio, camera and editing equipment, and also develop your writing skills. Professors prepare you to navigate the digital world and use cutting-edge technology, social media and good, old-fashioned research and investigative skills. Our courses are practical and skills-oriented, and our students' work is held to the highest professional industry standards.
Our faculty members have lived the journalism life
Learn from broadcasters who have reported and anchored the news, corresponded from around the world, managed newsrooms and produced in local and national markets. You will further your knowledge and experience with electives that include political and sports reporting; web journalism and interactive media; and broadcast management.
Your first break in the business
There are many on-campus opportunities to improve your skills in real-life reporting situations. You can also take advantage of Syracuse broadcast market internships as well as summer internships at news outlets across the country. When you graduate, you will be well equipped to work in a multimedia, multi-platform world.
As a graduate, you'll join our network of successful alumni working as on-air multimedia news and sports journalists. Or you may work behind the scenes as a producer, researcher or newsroom manager.
