It's an exciting time to be a journalist. New technologies are redefining the way we work, communicate, and interact with one another, and are providing new opportunities for students who are willing to go one step further and learn how to practice responsible, compelling storytelling.
Alumni are finding jobs as reporters, producers, editors, photographers and other news positions as well as progressing to upper-level management positions such as anchoring CBS Evening News and as vice president of Mattel, Inc. In addition to landing a job, the industry has recognized our graduates with five Pulitzer Prizes.
If you study journalism at Texas Tech, we will provide you with cutting-edge training steeped in honored journalism traditions taught by distinguished bright, enthusiastic, personable media veterans who care about students, journalism, and journalism’s future. We can promise that if you apply yourself and work hard during your Tech experience you will have fun and you will come away with a mindset and skillset that will prepare you for an exciting future in news, reporting, and every new communication opportunity the future might uncover.
