Unleash your curiosity.
Journalists explore issues, find answers, investigate mysteries, inform the public, expose wrongdoing and record history. We do it by telling stories.
At UAF Journalism, we teach the skills you need to succeed, whether in a newsroom or a boardroom. You’ll learn to question the status quo, research important issues, write stories that change lives, make photographs that capture the human spirit and shoot and edit video that illuminates the world around us. And instead of sitting in a classroom listening to endless lectures, you’ll learn these skills by actually doing them.
