Print Journalism

CURRICULUM: PRINT JOURNALISM

For more than 50 years, the University of Arizona Journalism School has provided students with the intellectual training and professional skills that journalists need to cover complex events and issues accurately and fairly, wherever they occur.

Students who seek careers in print journalism get the opportunity to handle every phase of production for two publications that are vital sources of news and information for two Arizona communities. By producing real-world publications, students allow their work to be judged by faculty and the public at large. Students also develop critical thinking, research, visual communication and writing skills and learn to deal with the legal and ethical issues that confront professional journalists.

The Tombstone Epitaph and the El Independiente are distributed to specific localities in southern Arizona and are available online.

Since stories are told with words and pictures, journalism students get a full understanding of photography's role in the news industry. An introductory course covers the basics of photojournalism. Advanced skills courses are available for students considering a career in photojournalism.
