The multimedia journalism master program at Arkansas Tech University is primarily about the story. As a student within the program, you will learn and practice how to find, how to get and how to tell the story in ways that resonate in today’s digital environment. To prepare you for careers in the rapidly changing media landscape, the multimedia program provides diverse production courses in a sequence. In other words, students are required to take at least five production classes from a basic multimedia writing class to the most advanced production class across digital media platforms one after another.
By getting diverse hands-on experience in auditory, visual, explanatory and narrative storytelling, you will build up the professional-level journalistic and technical skills that the current media industry is seeking. Once completed successfully, you will be ready to take on whatever challenge that comes your way. Besides learning practical skills of a professional journalist, you will also learn how media interact with societies, emerging new media including social media, ethical and legal issues related to news media.
