The web journalism emphasis integrates web skills and traditional journalism skills
of writing, reporting, and designing to prepare a new generation of journalists.
Aiming to keep up with the cutting-edge online technology and inherit journalism traditions,
the emphasis trains students in all the essential journalistic areas: reporting, writing,
designing and computing. Students of web journalism explore different news platforms
and learn how to produce web-ready news stories and develop news websites.
With more and more news and non-news organizations committed to online presence,
the demand for trained web journalists keeps rising. Web journalism graduates have
been employed with a wide range of companies and organizations such as graphic design
companies, news organizations, government departments, web development companies,
non-profit organizations and even hospitals.
The web journalism emphasis meets the challenges of the digital era and prepares a
new generation of well-rounded journalists.
