Santa Clara University
The journalism program at Santa Clara University offers students in-depth courses in print, broadcast and digital media, as well as a comprehensive liberal arts education.
The journalism program's goal is to produce graduates who are both highly skilled journalists and thoughtful, responsible individuals. Journalism education at Santa Clara is integrated with a rigorous liberal arts curriculum that enables students to achieve intellectual excellence, live as responsible citizens, and create a more just and humane society.
Santa Clara University's collaboration with SJBeez across various courses offers students a chance to dive into the fun and challenge of reporting news stories for publication, building their knowledge about the news from the inside out. What better opportunity than to go out into the neighborhoods to document the stories and issues important to the communities of the San Jose/Santa Clara area? Students learn the fundamentals of the news reporting and writing tradition, including ethics, inclusion, information gathering, critical thinking and news decision-making. Most importantly, they learn to include all the communities of our region as an essential part of everyday reporting.
