Our Focus Is Your Future

WKU’s School of Journalism & Broadcasting (SJ&B), accredited by ACEJMC, blends innovative education with emerging technology to prepare you for leadership in a changing media environment.

While you study in one of six majors or three minors – advertising, broadcasting, film, journalism, photojournalism or public relations – the school offers an overall experience to support your success.

  • SJ&B classes offer learning opportunities in digital technology and storytelling for all majors.

  • Four interactive user experience (IXD) classes are available.

  • Multimedia labs and HD studios are equipped with the technology and equipment needed to provide hands-on experience in all majors.

  • Your practical experience options are numerous. While studying, you are encouraged to seek internships or work study opportunities on and off campus with news publications, TV or radio outlets, advertising or public relations firms, not-for-profit organizations, or other business locations.

  • SJ&B student accomplishments earn distinctions from Hearst Journalism Awards, Advertising Federation, Associated Press, Broadcast Education Association, Professional Marketing Association, Public Relations Society of America, and Society of Professional Journalists.

  • Research students in SJ&B present at conferences and publish WKU Honors College theses.
