Journalists provide news, information, and commentary that help citizens make decisions affecting their lives and participation in a democratic society. Because of this responsibility, the press is the only institution mentioned by name -- and protected -- in the Constitution. Students can learn to appreciate this responsibility by specializing in newspaper, magazine, and web-based media, plus taking courses in related sequences like photography and visual communication. MTSU's accredited program emphasizes writing/reporting skills, theory, history, law, ethics, design, management, research, new media, and freedom of expression. Faculty have a wide range of academic and professional backgrounds, and the School of Journalism and Strategic Media offers on-campus practicum and off-campus internship opportunities, including the Seigenthaler News Service-MTSU in Nashville. The School has close ties to the independent student newspaper, Sidelines, and other outlets housed in the Center for Innovation in Media.
