OUR PHILOSOPHY OF JOURNALISM
Information is power
Society must have professionals who can supply people with the information they need to make decisions about their lives and their futures.
At Youngstown State University, we believe in the importance of journalism to society and to democracy.
We believe that journalists have the power to shape the world.
Guided by this philosophy, YSU's journalism major gives you a balance of practical and theoretical experience.
We teach you to ask tough questions, to uncover and interpret information, to write leads, to conduct interviews and to work with technologies to deliver the news in multiple platforms from print to broadcast to podcast.
We also encourage you to think critically about the stories you report and the impact they will have on communities and society in general.
