"I got a ‘crash course’ in what it means to be a real journalist through Morrisville’s Journalism degree program. I was exposed to the ins and outs of print, radio, and television with real-world, hands-on learning. With the personal attention I received from my professors and fellow students, I graduated with the skills it took to be a success in this business. I was challenged to dig deeper and really look at journalism as an important public service. It’s a responsibility I take seriously. Every day I go to work I rely on something I learned at Morrisville. It’s an experience I’m grateful to have. As I encounter journalists from other schools, I’m proud to let them know I am, and always will be, a Mustang."

Videojournalism I (Production/Editing) is designed so students emulate the world of videojournalists or “news content producers” in the field.

Students will learn the technical parameters of digital video cameras, audio and video editing, and basic field production. Broadcast writing formats and editing protocol are integral components of this course. Prerequisite: “C” or better in JOUR 126 Broadcast Writing & Editing. 3 credits (3 lecture hours), fall or spring semester
