In a diverse, increasingly interconnected world, the Communication, Journalism and Media Department educates students to be effective and ethical communicators to multiple audiences. Students develop transferable analytical, creative and practical skills in communication, journalism, and video production that enable them to advance democratic ideals and work toward social justice in governmental, non-profit, and corporate sectors.

You'll learn in our smart classrooms, state-of-the-art computer labs, specialized video production classroom, editing lab, and television studio. You'll get comfortable using industry-standard video production equipment and editing software. You can gain even more experience by writing for our award-winning student newspaper/online publications, The Suffolk Journal or The Suffolk Voice; joining the student video club, RamCam Productions; or getting in front of the camera reporting on Suffolk in the City for New England Cable News.

Experienced Faculty with Industry Connections

When they are not in the classroom, your professors can be found at sports venues broadcasting games, at international conferences presenting their latest research findings, at screenings discussing their own work, or lobbying for their communities. As a Suffolk student, you could find yourself working at the production desk at a news station or on a movie set. Our faculty also serve on the boards of major national academic organizations, including the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication and the National Communication Association.

These professors will also help connect you with internships. Suffolk students regularly intern at New England Cable News, PBS, WHDH-TV7, and many other Boston-based media outlets. They also enjoy co-op opportunities at companies like The Boston Globe.
