What Do Our Grads Say About Their Experience on Student Publication?


About The Journalism Program / Course Information

Our student staff members love welcoming new students to our team to produce the website (The Lancer Feed), print magazine (Image), videos, social media (@thelancerfeed) and yearbook (Legend).

We think being part of the journalism program will be a highlight of your time at Lafayette. The prerequisite courses will prepare you to do the work required for the publications. In the Digital Media Production, News Production or Yearbook Production class you will find an experience very different from any class you have ever taken before.

Student editors are responsible for the staffs and the content produced. You will have a lot of individual freedom to work in areas and on projects that specifically interest you. Student Publications staff members also get the chance to travel to national journalism conventions and compete in contests. Also, working on a high school publication looks fantastic on college applications.

These are the courses available in the journalism program:

Journalism Writing & Reporting (1 semester Language Arts elective credit) *best for News or Yearbook Production

If you were on a middle school publication staff or are willing to attend a summer workshop, you may be able to skip prerequisite course
