Inside the Program

Journalism major experiences March Madness

Communication students have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience before graduation.

Kristen Boxman, a senior journalism major, recently experienced firsthand why they call it March Madness. As a producer at KWCH, she worked the 2018 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament.

“Working at KWCH during the tournament has been the most unique experience ever and it was all possible because I started as a newsroom intern, a position I received through the Career Development Center," said Boxman.

Curriculum

To complete the communication departmental honors track, you'll take 12 hours of upper-level communications coursework and also complete a senior honors project.
