Pursue a Career in Journalism and Public Relations
The Journalism Department's award-winning program provides opportunities to master varied skills leading to entry-level opportunities in journalism and public relations.
Options for Every Goal
No matter your goal, our classes and programs can help you get there. You may choose to follow our pathway for transfer to a four-year program, complete an Associate of Arts degree and Award of Achievement at City College or upgrade your skills through one of our Certificates of Completion. Further, we are committed to assisting students who are seeking a career option in media-related interests such as public relations, publishing, and advertising. To support this work we provide internship and work experience classes.
The role of journalists is to challenge people, not to just mindlessly amuse them.
— Carl Bernstein, Author & Journalist
Get Hands-On Experience
During classes, you will get hands-on experience in the writing, publishing, and distribution of both a magazine and a biweekly newspaper. This is done in an environment that closely resembles the environment of a professional newsroom, using digital technology to paginate, edit, and publish the paper.
