The field of journalism is changing to meet the demands of today's evolving media. Cedarville's new and cutting-edge journalism program is designed to equip the next generation of journalists who will bring a strong ethical and moral perspective to the changing way people access the news.
Cedarville's approach: convergent journalism. Full convergence involves a radical change in approach and mindset among journalists and their managers. It involves a shared assignment desk where the key people and the multimedia assignment editors assess each news event on its merits and send the most appropriate people to the story. Convergent coverage is driven by the significance of the news event. Depending on variables unique to each country and company, convergence is one of the most likely scenarios for media organizations around the world.
Cedarville's journalism curriculum is benchmarked with other programs of excellence, and delivers the integrity of a Christian worldview unique to Cedarville University.
