Journalism

Be Ahead of the Curve

Be prepared for the dynamic developments in journalism that will change the face of this vital industry.  We study the theory and practice of journalism, including mass media and society, media literacy, visual journalism, and writing for different media types including the web.  Learn information literacy and research skills that are applicable in almost any field.

Learn real world journalism through internships in radio, newspaper, television, and the web.  And if you choose to pursue journalism for your Bachelors degree, we can help you prepare for entry.

Our instructors include scholars and working journalists. We have an instructor who is renowned as a scholar in the rhetoric of mass media, an instructor who was a member of a team of editors and reporters who won a Pulitzer for their coverage of the 1980 Mount St. Helens eruption and its aftermath, and an instructor who has been internationally educated and is a working journalist.

Transferable Credits

Although PCC does not offer a degree in Journalism, the classes are lower division collegiate courses that transfer to a four-year college or university.  Journalism courses may vary in how they transfer to different programs in the following ways:

  • Elective credits
  • Program requirement credits
  • Graduation requirements

Students are encouraged to check with the four-year institution you are considering for each course’s transferability.
