As the amount of knowledge available to us increases, we need more than ever to be able to weigh information and to shape it into effective communication.

Students in the Journalism program at Georgia State learn how to gather, evaluate, and circulate information and opinion about our contemporary world. Skills and concepts learned in Journalism can be used across media both today and tomorrow.

Journalism majors prepare for careers in print journalism (from traditional publications to online publishing), radio/television (telecommunication), or public relations.

Journalism courses also teach invaluable skills in media literacy for those who seek other vocations.


As of spring 2011, all students who declare to be Journalism majors must follow the current curriculum.

Students who were Journalism majors before spring 2011 may choose either the current curriculum or the previous curriculum.
