The Journalism/Broadcasting Major
At Marietta College
You can produce programming and broadcasts for two radio stations and a television station — all as a student, all on campus. You’ll work in the same environment you find in major-market media outlets. Specialized software drives our integrated broadcasting computer system and links our newsroom to our radio and television studios. This technology enables our radio announcers to incorporate wire feeds from CNN and the Associated Press into their radio newscasts with ease.
For journalism experience, you can work for our online newspaper, the Marcolian, one of the top four small-college newspapers in the country. And all students complete at least one internship through our connections across the country; sites have included MTV, Doctor Oz, The San Antonio News-Express, the West Virginia Press Association and several other television and radio stations and newspapers.
For additional opportunities in this rapidly changing field, travel to another country to study world broadcasting. Or join Marietta’s chapters of the Society of Professional Journalists and the National Broadcast Society. Students have made professional connections by attending national conferences and taking top honors at student competitions.
