The Journalism minor at Stonehill is designed to help graduates launch careers in the journalism, public relations and advertising worlds.
Journalism students learn how to write news and feature stories, interview a wide range of people, research topics, cover events and shoot video – all with the goal of developing strong, marketable skills after graduation.
Courses ranging from video production and news writing to media law are taught by award-winning professors with real-world experience.

Experiential Learning Opportunities
Experiential learning begins on campus - where students have access to TV studios, the WSHL-FM Stonehill College Radio studio and The Summit student newspaper - and continues in the field, through internships across the region. Stories written by our students in the classroom grace the pages of magazines, newspapers and websites throughout New England. Videos and photos shot by these student-journalists have also been featured on several websites.
The results can be seen in the many scholarships that our Journalism students have won over year years, including the Esper Reporting Scholarship from the New England Associated Press News Executive Association.
Public Relations and Marketing Opportunities
The skills learned in the Journalism minor translate into the growing field of public relations and marketing. Many of our students also intern in public relations and marketing departments throughout the Northeast. Public relations courses are offered through the Communication Department.
Our students have interned at newspapers, news websites, television stations and radio stations throughout the Northeast.
