Media, Journalism & Digital Storytelling Department

Leverage state-of-the-art technology to become a master storyteller across a wide variety of platforms.

Asbury University prides itself on being a liberal arts college. The Media Communication program builds on that foundation by providing a core curriculum, which gives students experience in many aspects of media. The goal is for students to learn the art of storytelling and communicating ideas. Students are given the opportunity to explore the practical hands-on application of theories and skills learned in the classroom using state-of-the-art equipment. Students can focus their studies on any of the six emphases available, which covers every aspect of media.

The Journalism major and minor at Asbury University ground students in an understanding of the power of writing, photo imaging and graphics to bring meaning in an ever-changing marketplace of ideas. The program prepares students to write and create for any media: print, online, broadcast. Courses include writing, editing, photojournalism, television production, shooting documentaries and more. Students with a Journalism major or minor gain not only professional journalistic skills but an understanding of how Christian values can be applied to competent leadership over print and online media ranging from newspapers and magazines to public relations and advertising materials.
