University Majors

California State University, Chico
Journalism B.A. News Option

Students in the News Option study the basics of journalism: information gathering, interviewing, reporting, writing, editing and visual presentation skills. The option focuses on thinking, research, and understanding the diverse society in which we live.

Journalists play an important role in a free and democratic society as they serve a public in need of information about its leaders, political institutions and the culture. A journalist is part watchdog and part entertainer. The job requires guts, instincts and talent. At its highest form, journalism educates and provides information that people need in their everyday lives. Students who graduate with a degree in the news-editorial option spend at least one semester and often two or three semesters working on the department`s laboratory newspaper, which may be the most honored college newspaper in the country. By practicing journalism, our students learn to tell the stories that need to be told.
