Why Journalism at Stetson University?

Stetson's Journalism minor begins with a required course that introduces the fundamentals of excellent, ethical journalism and concludes with the interactive studio class, where students collaborate and create a work of journalism while being coached by a faculty member and mentored by a working journalist. Also, as one of your classes, you have the freedom to choose a journalism/media internship that meets your specific needs and goals.

"I'm incredibly proud of the work my team has put together this year, from the other Hatter Network executives to the writers and designers. To place so highly in our first year as a magazine and digital-first organization feels wonderful, especially when I consider the hours we have all devoted to this. These honors go to each of us."
