Journalism Studies A.A.

Journalism students discussing a story

Find your story.

If you have a passion for storytelling and want to explore journalistic writing as a career, your story should begin in the SUNY Morrisville Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree program in journalism studies.

With writing as its cornerstone, the program helps you discover your own style while using a true hands-on approach to immediately immerse you in the field. Our Production Labs allow you to explore various communication careers in laboratory settings that mirror real-world industries.

Options include our student-produced campus newspaper, The Chimes, and the multimedia WCVM that features WCVM-AM 1580 "The Vortex," WCVM Cable Channel 4, an internet radio station and a digital video production unit.

These opportunities will give you experiences in journalism, broadcasting, public relations, video and still photography, web content production, advertising and marketing as you use the latest digital technology for online, video and audio production.

You can also hone your writing skills through the SUNY Morrisville Writers Club, which connects student poets and prose writers who get to experience and critique each other’s work.

As you find your story and style, you’ll be prepared to continue your studies in a bachelor’s degree program, and can choose from our two Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree programs: journalism & communication for online media, or videojournalism.
