Student work

Here at the Department of Communication & Journalism, our classes just don't send you away with knowledge that won't get you anywhere in life. We ready our students for the next step after college by introducing them to a variety of avenues to choose from after they graduate. In the real world, it's not about just showing experience at a four-year college but also being able to showcase your work from college in a professional way. The following represents a small showcase of student work over the past few semesters - keep coming back to this page as we continue to revise our list here.
