“The central purpose of journalism is to provide citizens with accurate and reliable information they need to function in a free society.” Two of journalism’s most important obligations are to the truth and to their citizens. The truth comes with assembling and verifying facts  based on profesionalism.

There are many opportunities with journalism such as the Washington Journalism Semester at American University. “The curriculum focuses on print, broadcast and new media and routinely attracts some of the most prominent speakers in the field.” Some students are given the chance to sit in Supreme Courts and listen in on arguments and even meet some of the younger ESPN stars.

The Journalism Department at the University of Connecticut believes that students in other fields of majors should consider journalism as a second major to better their educational and career opportunities. This department is also known for helping non-majors with their writing skills or those eager to learn about the media. I absolutely loved reading about this department from this school because they had an excellent point of view. They believe that the journalism education helps students who don’t understand the situation of others to understand them better, even when their situations are unlike that of their own.
