The Pitt-Johnstown journalism program is a traditional print discipline designed to produce journalists with solid writing skills that adhere to professional guidelines for language and usage.
In the past few years, Pitt-Johnstown's journalism program graduates have won 35 statewide awards for their professional work.
The faculty has vast real-world newsroom experience. Students learn to create and generate public presentations in such forms as news stories, teases and headlines, still photography, and graphic layout and design. Students also learn how to meet the unforgiving deadlines of professional practice.
The program centers on traditional production in a newspaper format, although these skills are applicable to any text or graphic presentation on any media platform.
Broadcast instruction and studio production experience are available.
