The Journalism major at Keene State College is the only stand-alone, four year journalism degree program in the USNH system and one of the few such programs in New England. The major prepares students for careers in the field by enabling them to build print, broadcast, and digital media skills in an applied setting.
Journalism, Multimedia, and Public Relations students at KSC have the opportunity to work for the school newspaper, The Equinox, and the weekly 30-minute television newscast, KSC-TV News, as well as WKNH Radio. Internships with professioinal media organizations and businesses are also an important part of the program.

The program has exceeded my expectations entirely; the hands-on, absolutely real life work and situations I’m in everyday with this program is preparing me for the job market." –Julie Conlon
