Our journalism program teaches students to write effectively, enhances their research
and interviewing skills, and develops their critical thinking skills. The program
also increases student understanding of the media and its impact on their lives
and perceptions about society.
The Communicator, SFCC's student newspaper, provides opportunities for students
to do the writing, editing, photography and layout involved in publishing a newspaper.
The staff sees the production process through from beginning to end, gaining valuable
experience for professional opportunities, acquiring skills that can be used in
a variety of areas. Students may register in College News courses for 1 to 5 credits.
The journalism program is housed within the department of Applied Visual Arts so that it may more easily collaborate and share
resources with other programs within the department, primarily photography and graphic design. For more information about other
programs and their faculty please visit the web pages of the Applied Visual Arts department.
