Chico State

Journalism & Public Relations

With a BA in Journalism, News Option graduates work for multiplatform news organizations and magazines. Public Relations Option graduates work in agency, corporate, technology, travel, entertainment, government, and non-profit settings.

The core journalistic skills emphasized in both options are in high demand from employers, who have a growing need for tech-savvy employees who can research, interview, write, edit and post professional work online with minimal supervision. J&PR operates under the assumption that students are being trained for jobs that may not yet exist. The program is dynamic, expanding, and energized by the continual and rapid development of digital media technologies.
