B.A. Multimedia Journalism
Loyola’s multimedia journalism major engages students in the issues shaping today’s media landscape, from the decline of newspapers, the rise of apps, virtual reality, and fake news. As part of Loyola’s mission-based education, students learn to stand on Jesuit values and ethics in an uncertain and ever-changing world.
Multimedia journalism students practice the skills that every journalist must master, including researching, interviewing, reporting, and writing. Students also gain exposure to the latest technology, equipment, and software through Loyola’s Convergence Studio, Owl Lab, and on-site radio station, WLUW.
Courses are offered at Loyola’s Water Tower Campus, located in the heart of downtown Chicago. In addition to Loyola’s on-campus media outlets, such as our student newspaper, The Phoenix, students can gain experience through professional internships at renowned media outlets like the Chicago Tribune, Sun-Times, WLS, and WMAQ, as well as major corporations, nonprofits, and agencies.
