Looking Back: Three years of Digital Journalism and Design

By Casey Peterson to DJD Blog

It’s hard to believe three years have passed since the Department of Journalism and Media Studies at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg began its completely online M.A. degree in Digital Journalism and Design.

Online and Face-to-Face: We're here for all types of learners

By Casey Peterson to DJD Blog

Online coursework is effective, but might not work for all types of learners. If online classes are not your ideal way to learn, USFSP offers a graduate program in Journalism and Media Studies with a more familiar on-campus class structure. The JMS graduate program includes a balanced mixture of face-to-face, online, and hybrid classes. You may attend classes part time or full time and complete a master’s degree in as little as two years.

Sizzling Images 2014: A Face-to-Face Change of Pace

By Casey Peterson to DJD Blog

In summer 2014, some DJD students took to the streets of St. Petersburg to hone their skills in food photography. Taught by Tampa Bay Times photographer Scott Keeler, Sizzling Images was the kick-off class for the graduate Food Writing and Photography Certificate program at University of South Florida St. Petersburg. Besides graduate and undergraduates, the course attracted several community members who took it as a workshop.

Getting Started

By Kelly St.Onge to DJD Blog

Being a student-journalist is no easy task. Journalism in itself is a type of shark pool to say the least. We have all heard the saying “dive in” and I feel, in journalism, that’s exactly what you have to do.
