Multimedia storytelling majors prepare for careers in storytelling across media platforms.
Students in this program take courses in the foundations of journalism, experience
traditional and new media and invest their practice through engagement in the context
of local and global communities.
Past students have developed hands-on experience with local enterprises that have
national reach including:
Through the Knight School of Communication you will have the opportunity to learn
from experienced faculty who are passionate about their field. Each team member has
extensive knowledge and background, and will work closely with you as you pursue your
degree. Meet your professors.
The Queens Knight School of Communication is a national leader in the study of digital
and media literacy; our faculty spearheaded the local digital literacy educational organization,
Digital Charlotte. We've also established the first curriculum partnership ever with Google Fiber.
You will have the opportunity to study and practice digital literacies across media
platforms. You will also find that employers are hiring people who can help navigate
and manage the complexities of internet-based, social and participatory media.
In addition to volunteering with Digital Charlotte, journalism and digital media majors may be interested in the Queens Chronicle, Project Airwaves and Lambda Pi
Eta. Learn more about student clubs and organizations.
Our students traveled to the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janiero, Brazil, to create
digital media packages, explore culture and report on the locale as they partnered
with a university there. The "Queens in Rio" study abroad trip was named the 2017
GoAbroad Innovation New Program. Plans are currently underway for the 2020 Tokyo Games.
"The professors at Queens have many networks throughout Charlotte which has helped
me meet people in this industry and learn from them. They also have many experiences
of their own both within the community and throughout the world which has given me
the opportunity to learn from different perspectives.”
Charlotte is the 16th largest city in the United States and a top 25 media market.
This city is the perfect place to gain experience in a newsroom, broadcast studio,
production booth or sports arena.
