Communication Degree with
Journalism concentration

The journalism program at Centenary helps students recognize the difference between opinion and reliable information then discover how how to translate that knowledge into grammatically and factually accurate, interesting, balanced writing.  Our journalism classes feature close faculty/student interaction in refining students' writing and encourage in-class shared editing by students. 

Journalism classes are run in a newsroom atmosphere to help students check for accuracy, do on-the-spot rewrites, and get a feel for meeting realistic, yet immediate, deadlines.  Centenary's journalism students are taught to be ruthless in self-editing in order to help them see how much more vibrant and clear, their writing can become.

The Quill - Centenary's student paper

Students on the Quill staff, in writing for the college paper, become a voice for the student body.  The Quill is an across-the-curriculum enterprise.  Some of our writers and editors have come from the Political Science, Equine, Business, and Education majors, as have our own Communication majors. Many of our staffers have become inspired by seeing their work in print, work which makes its way into their portfolios in seeking internships and employment.  They create feature stories, investigative articles, editorials, and humorous pieces, some of which have won college-sponsored awards. 

Staff members and graduates have found jobs in national equine magazines, regional newspapers, and a 2012 graduate is now a sportswriter for a Monmouth County newspaper.

The Hack - Centenary's Yearbook

The yearbook staff learns what it takes to cover all aspects of college life in photos and text, and to be involved in the creative and technical side of creating a book.  Computerized page layout,  theme creation, use of space, color, design, and the selling of ads all come into play, as well as organizational skills and promotion of the book.
