The Agricultural Journalism degree program is designed to prepare students for careers in journalism and mass communications. The degree gives the student a broad education. Graduates are also qualified to pursue careers in journalism and public relations that do not deal with agriculture or natural resources.
Agricultural Journalism at UNL combines the strengths of the College of Journalism and Mass Communication (one of the top 10 journalism programs in the nation) with the leading agricultural and life sciences faculty and research being conducted in the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources. Students complete internships throughout Nebraska and the United States and have the opportunity to be a part of a national award-winning student organization - Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow.
