Journalism: Public Relations
Communication, journalism and public relations, and telecommunications — while each major has a unique focus, they all interrelate. Your involvement in the School of Media and Communication will improve your speaking and writing, critical thinking, and cultural sensitivity.
You could fill your resume with media experience right on campus, with opportunities at the PBS television affiliate, WBGU-TV; the student newspaper, The BG News; or at either of the two student-run radio stations, WFAL-AM and WBGU-FM; and student news program. Network with your peers, alumni, and local professionals through BGSU’s chapters of the Society of Professional Journalists, National Association of Black Journalists, Association of Women in Communications, TCOM Student Association and other mentor programs. Early involvement in on-campus media opportunities means you’ll be well positioned for even the most nationally competitive internship opportunities. The BGSU School of Media and Communication has prepared alumni for opportunities with the Associated Press, E! Network, Discovery Communications, and Sirius XM Radio.
