Who We Are
At Northeastern's School of Journalism, we combine academic excellence with practical experience. Our students don't have to wait until after graduation to begin developing their skills as reporters and writers. We offer:
- An Undergraduate Program that prepares students for careers in print, broadcast, online journalism, and public relations
- A Graduate Program that offers a Professional Concentration, Research Concentration, and a new Concentration in Journalism and Public Policy
- A Cooperative Education program, available at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, that gives students experience at news organizations and media-related businesses
Journalism is a changing profession. As traditional forms of journalism and public relations expand to the Web, our School is committed remaining on the cutting edge of new technology. We have two computer labs equipped with iMacs and PCs with the latest software. We also have a new, state-of-the-art newsroom featuring a bank of computers and cable television. This newsroom is used for two unique courses:
Newsroom Practices, taught by Lincoln McKie formerly from the Worcester Telegram, Lowell Sun and Transcript Newspapers, introduces students to the real world of news publishing. Students write for the New England Press Bulletin, a monthly publication featuring news about the New England newspapers and the news business. The Bulletin published both paper and on-line versions.
Investigative Reporting, taught by Walter Robinson, former Boston Globe Spotlight editor and Pulitzer Prize winner, introduces students to investigative reporting. In this class, students work on projects for publication in The Boston Globe.
