Broadcast Journalism

Do you dream about covering the biggest stories? Do you want to cover the White House or the NFL or the latest film preview? We can get you there, live and in front of the camera, telling the stories that make a difference across the world and down the street.


Turn on any major network news channel and you'll see our graduates at work. ESPN, CNN, FOX, NBC, BET, CBS, ABC — it's an alphabet soup that spells out success. Flip on the television in New York, Philadelphia, Hong Kong, Charlotte, Atlanta, Amsterdam, Denver, Tampa and other major cities — we're there, too. You'll also be part of a powerful network that includes colleagues at National Geographic, the Harlem Globetrotters, NFL films and almost every television station in the Southeast. Here are just a few of our alumni making their mark in the field.


As a student, you'll learn to report and narrate stories, shoot and produce video and practice play-by-play and public speaking. While you're still in school, you'll get to work at big news events as part of your class schedule, like the students who got a front-row seat to history during the presidential primary campaigns. Learn more about the classes you will take as a broadcast journalism student in the academic bulletin. But here are some which may be of particular interest to you.

Capstone Experience

As a senior, you'll cap off your school career on the team that produces a daily live television newscast airing on campus and local cable stations. You can stream the broadcasts from our Livestream channel.  And you can see their work on the Carolina News and Reporter website. Check out the packages these students created in senior semester and see where they are working now as new graduates.

In the News

We don't just report the news — our students, alumni and faculty also make the news. Here are some of their recent headlines.



Want to see what it's like to work in the big leagues? We'll help you. We find you internships in major television markets, with professional sports teams or even in your hometown, if that's what you are dreaming of.  And these are just some of the many opportunities for our students.

Advanced Study

As a broadcast journalism student, you also have an opportunity to gain a solid foundation for graduate study. Further your writing and reporting skills and understanding of advanced communication techniques with graduate-level courses through our accelerated master’s plan. Select from strategic communications management or multimedia journalism and complete two degrees in as little as five years.


You’ll study with real pros like Rick Peterson, a TV veteran who still works for NBC News Channel on weekends and in his spare time, and Kevin Hull, a former television sports broadcaster who has reported live from the Super Bowl, Stanley Cup Finals and various other big (and small) sporting events.  Meet more of the journalism faculty»
