Journalism

  •  


  • The Bachelor of Arts in Journalism program at LIU Brooklyn capitalizes on its location in New York City, the media capital of the world, to prepare students for a wide variety of careers. A cutting-edge curriculum, dynamic faculty, state-of-the-art facilities and internships with leading media organizations create a foundation for professional success. The program offers concentrations in magazine and sports journalism as well as in broadcasting and public relations.


  • Journalism students have interned at media organizations ranging from ABC News and MTV to Vibe magazine, CBS Sports and The New York Times. They also gain invaluable experience and build their résumés by contributing to Seawanhaka, the campus newspaper, and to WLIU-FM and WLIU-TV, the campus radio and television stations. Editors and managers receive partial tuition remission.


  • The department sponsors a campus chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists, which invites leading journalists to campus and participates in regional and national conventions. LIU Brooklyn also maintains an active relationship with the Deadline Club of New York, the New York Association of Black Journalists and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists—organizations that provide scholarships and other resources for Journalism majors.


  • The Kalman Siegel Newswriting Laboratory, established with support from The New York Times Company Foundation, provides a professional newsroom environment for Journalism classes.
