Rebuilt and Committed to the 21st Century
The buzzword in media today is “convergence” – jargon for the integration of words, graphics, still photos and video online. Creighton’s Department of Journalism, Media & Computing takes convergence one step further, recognizing that the information age requires professionals to develop and process information as well as design and present it. As the name suggests, the department integrates expertise in journalism, graphic design, and computer science to provide a complete coverage of information-age skills.
All JM&C students receive a balanced foundation in information, taking a common core of classes that prepare them to be effective writers, designers, and software developers. The common core also develops critical thinking skills and provides hands-on expertise with industry-strength software packages. Beyond the JM&C core, students specialize in one of the department’s three majors: Journalism, Graphic Design, or Informatics & Computing Science. Select a major from the menu on the left for more information.
JM&C’s state-of-the-art curriculum gives graduates an edge in finding jobs. Most of our majors complete internships as part of their studies, gaining valuable work experience with companies, non-profit organizations, or educational institutions (often for good pay and academic credit). JM&C graduates are well prepared for the information-based jobs of today and the future. In fact, many graduates are hired for positions that hadn’t existed when they enrolled at Creighton.
