Electronic Media Journalism

The electronic media have a profound impact on daily life and the future of local and global communities. The professors in Electronic Media Journalism are dedicated to nurturing the aspirations of men and women who seek to dedicate their professional lives to the art and craft of storytelling.

Majors study all aspects of news, including television, radio, broadband, and web operations in preparation for careers as electronic media professionals. The program emphasizes hands-on learning in the development of writing skills, use of equipment and production of news, sports and entertainment.

All Electronic Media Journalism students are urged to get involved with MT10-TV and WMTS-FM the two award winning, student run electronic media outlets directly linked to the Department of Electronic Media.

Internships with Nashville (the 30 th ranked market in the United States) television stations and radio stations also give students a "real world" experience.
