Department of Multimedia Journalism

The Department of Multimedia Journalism (MMJN) broadens the horizons of students, exposing them to the infinite possibilities of journalism careers that further not only their own interests but diversify the perspective of local, national and international events to include underrepresented people and stories that are often left untold. MMJN provides solid instruction that develops critically-thinking multimedia storytellers, who will be grounded in a foundation of history, ethics, culture and entrepreneurship and be prepared to expand perspectives in the delivery of news and information to a diverse public across media platforms. This is accomplished through a range of experiential learning opportunities, domestically and abroad, that will help student journalists practice their craft responsibly and professionally in pursuit of excellence; and to develop in students an understanding of and appreciation for freedom of speech and press rights. Besides developing an appreciation for local, community stories in Baltimore, students have traveled to and reported from a variety of locations, including Washington, D.C., New York, Pennsylvania, Utah and West Virginia as well as Cuba, France and Greece.
