Digital or multimedia journalism programs tend to equally emphasize two basic skill sets in their curriculum: (a) news writing and reporting; (b) digital/multimedia journalism. They also require students to take courses in ethics, law, and introductory courses in journalism and media. However, television or broadcast is usually not part of the mandatory core and/or required-of-all courses.
This finding is based on an analysis of “fully integrated” digital/multimedia journalism programs at eight universities: Arizona State University, Auburn University, Denver University, Emerson College, University of Iowa, Kansas State University, University of Texas at Austin, and Washington State University.
