As a form of communication, the field of journalism is changing perhaps more rapidly than many other forms of media. Today’s graduate in journalism, in fact, needs to be proficient in many communication styles that go beyond pencil and paper.

The DWU journalism program, housed within the department of communication, prepares students for a career by teaching them topics current in the industry and giving them hands-on experience working with the student publication, Prairie Winds, or perhaps an internship with Mitchell’s newspaper, The Daily Republic. 

The variety of courses taken in the communication department ensures a wide-ranging knowledge of not only journalistic technique but also necessary skills surrounding graphic, digital, and even oral presentation.
