About Journalism & Digital Storytelling
For decades, Asbury University has prepared Christian journalists who negotiate life’s journey with insight, courage and joy. As a Journalism and Digital Storytelling major at Asbury, you'll be inundated with opportunities to tell important stories through print, broadcast and online media. Our national-award-winning program, which recently received a Student Emmy, provides you with numerous high-profile national and international opportunities, including the chance to produce news packages at the Summer and Winter Olympics.
Along with our nationally acclaimed student newspaper, our journalism curriculum has become one of the most cutting-edge programs in the country, with classes ranging from convergent news to documentary filmmaking. The “home base” of our convergent journalism program is a CNN-style news bureau where students from all areas of media collaborate to produce the print and online editions of our newspaper.
After graduation, Asbury journalism alumni go on to top media outlets such as CNN and prestigious journalism graduate schools such as Northwestern and Missouri-Columbia. Some work for newspapers, others become editors of magazines, and still others are Web writers for international Christian organizations. Whatever path you choose to follow, Asbury will prepare you for the challenges that lie ahead..
