Thank you for your interest in the School of Communication and Journalism! In the 21st century, information is power and communication skills are in high-demand. Our mission is to foster the development of exemplary communicators as industry leaders, scholars, professionals and educators through innovative curricula, research, practice and opportunities. We emphasize hands-on, experiential learning projects for audiences and actual clients beyond the classroom. I encourage you to consider how our majors, minors and extracurricular activities can help you be valued, get hired and make a difference!
Laura Butterbrodt is a journalism major with a global studies minor from Granite Falls, MN.
“I was editor of my high school yearbook. I loved being ‘in the know’ with what was going on around me. I just crossed my fingers I would still like it in college, and I do!”
Most memorable SDSU experience?
“Working at The Collegian. It’s been great work experience, as well as a great opportunity to meet tons of new people.”
“Basic newswriting just because it was so helpful to learn the basics that I’ll use every day.”
I did an internship at the Watertown Public Opinion summer 2017. I would like to work as a newspaper or magazine reporter.
