Opportunities

Asbury University gives Journalism students many opportunities to hone their skills and become skilled at their chosen area of emphasis. We bring real life experience to the classroom and challenge our students to stretch themselves while working on print, online and broadcast assignments. Besides covering campus events, students also have the opportunity to be reporters and interviewers on television shows. Students even cover the Olympics. Journalism students travelled to the London, Sochi and Rio for the Olympics, covering stories for our local NBC affiliate, WLEX-TV. The students interviewed Olympic athletes and covered stories around the Games. Many unique opportunities are available at Asbury for journalism students working in print and video.
