The news-editorial sequence in the Communications major trains journalists for many career opportunities, which have shifted more to online in recent years. But online media still need excellent writers, reporters, photographers, designers and editors, as do print media. This includes work at print and online newspapers, magazines and news organizations. Our graduates may also find jobs with news wire services and organizational and professional newsletters. Many corporations also value the writing, editing, layout and media design skills taught in the news editorial courses.
