In 1984, what was originally referred to as the Department of Journalism and Telecommunications for Arizona State University, was renamed the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism. Today the school has over 2,000 students enrolled in either its undergraduate or graduate programs, with over 500 students participating in its online classes. The school provides two undergraduate programs: Journalism and Mass Communication, and Sports Journalism. Students can also choose to minor in Media Analysis, giving them a better understanding of how people interpret information shared through media, and how that information affects them. As a student at the Walter Cronkite School, you will also have opportunity to participate in over a dozen different professional programs, and over 500 internships offered through professional news organizations. Beginning your freshman year, you will also be given the chance to sign up for a mentorship program offered by media professionals and hosted through the school. These mentorship programs will allow you to receive advice, make valuable network connections, and begin to take steps towards establishing your own career in journalism. In addition to these opportunities, you will also be able to join any of Cronkite’s three student media organizations; providing you with valuable experience in radio, web, and print news publications.
