Print journalism focuses on preparation of print media for a wide range of exciting and rewarding career opportunities .
Students enjoy small classes and close guidance by a core of dedicated faculty, all of whom have decades of professional experience in the newspaper, magazine and print production industries.
Classroom instruction includes real-world assignments, such as covering the Conway City Council, Faulkner County Quorum Court, elections, state legislature etc.
The classroom experience is augmented by laboratory experience.
From reporting classes to photography, editing and design, students take the skills learned in their classes and put them to work on The Echo, the UCA student newspaper, and/or The Scroll, the yearbook, both of which win numerous awards from the Arkansas College Media Association every year.
Students also have chances to further enhance their university experience through freelance opportunities with various local media, including the Log Cabin Democrat.
"Real World," internships may complete the program and prepare students for careers in the lively world of print media.
