Bachelor of Arts in Journalism | Add new course

The Journalism program, the oldest in the college, gives students a strong grounding in the arts and sciences and equips them with skills currently required by the profession.

Students are trained to be socially responsible and critical professionals – aware of the power and the responsibilities of the press, committed to defend press freedom, and living up to the highest professional and ethical standards.

The Department of Journalism has pioneered several journalism courses like Journalism Ethics, Environmental Reporting, Business Reporting, Online Journalism, and Investigative Journalism. Its curriculum, comparable to many journalism programs abroad, is used as a pattern by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) in its design for journalism programs. CHED named the Journalism program a Center of Excellence in Journalism for the 1999-2000 and March 2013-May 2014 terms.
