On-Campus Study Opportunities

Torch Radio

Biola's award-winning student-run web radio programming gives students hands-on experience in reporting news and features, covering campus and regional sports, and creating talk-show format programming around Christian music and news trends. Student work takes place in an on-campus studio or in field-reporting.

EagleVision

Biola's student-run Webcast programming uses state-of-the-art studio and field equipment to cover news events, sports and trends facing the Biola campus and surrounding regions of southern Los Angeles and northern Orange County. EagleVision staff get practical experience in deadline reporting, script-writing, anchoring, editing and producing packages for Internet broadcast. EagleVision also uses CNN footage for localized coverage of world events. Talk-show studio formats are used to provide students experience with news-feature variety in programming.

The Chimes and Chimes Online

Biola's award-winning online newspaper, an independent media operation, provides deadline experience in reporting, writing, photojournalism, graphics design and multimedia for the Web. Editors and business staff, funded by payroll or scholarship, are chosen by competitive application a year in advance. Staff members are selected annually for expertise in select media areas (e.g. Advertising staff are selected for background in marketing). Staff training for the editorial and advertising staff provides students with incentives for excellence in pre-professional career portfolio material. Chimes Online, a stand-alone staff of writers, photographers, and multimedia producers provides daily, interactive news and feature coverage of the campus and the La Mirada region.

Media Narrative Project

In a program unique among Christian colleges and universities nationally, students in the Department of Digital Journalism and Media regularly produce a book-length inquiry into a cross-cultural topic. By means of in-depth reporting and documentary photojournalism, students use collaborative journalism and media techniques to take a concept from idea to finished product in one semester. Topics these books have explored include: street survival and ministry on Skid Row, after-school programs in the housing projects of Los Angeles; a non-profit organization’s role in Santa Ana to prevent gang violence; the despair and hope of life in the Dominican Republic and in Haiti, and the pain of alienation and fear felt by migrants and their families on either side of the Tijuana border. These books, designed with student input, are produced through Biola Avenue Press, the department’s imprint. The books are sold on Amazon.com.

Gradient

Urban journalism is a passion of the Digital Journalism & Media program. To make that real, the department takes students along with advanced-level camera gear into Los Angeles in a class whose central theme is to tell visual stories of the city. These stories become Gradient, a slick-page magazine highlighting the people and places in Los Angeles that are untold parts of what makes this city unique in the southwest United States. Cross-cultural journalistic encounter, a key foundation of our program, is a central element of this project-focused experience.

The Biolan

Biola's yearbook — one of the oldest forms of student media on the campus — provides students experience in magazine-style feature writing, feature and documentary-style photojournalism and four-color page design in a context that gives student journalists insight to careers in magazine production and book publishing. Editors are chosen a year in advance, but section editors are selected in Fall semesters to serve through the year.

The Point

This award-winning feature magazine is published at the end of each Fall and Spring semester. Work on The Point's staff, some of it by competitive application only, gives students hands-on experience in production of a full-color, slick-page publication. Student editors choose each edition's theme and select stories and photos from the best work of staff and student freelancers. Point staffers get training and experience in copy-editing, photojournalism and page design. Their name on the masthead of this publication, along with hard-earned skills, provide a leaping off point for magazine or publishing careers.

Journalist in Residence

Biola's location in one of the nation's top media markets makes it a crossroads for journalists and public relations professionals of national and international renown. The Department of Digital Journalism and Media invites selected professionals and successful alumni to speak on special topics in a one-credit course experience for students tailored to the trends and events of California, the Southwestern United States, the nation, and other parts of the world.

Off-Campus Program Opportunities

Biola offers several off-campus program opportunities geared to students earning a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Integrated Media. More information about these experiential learning programs can be found in the Study Abroad and Study USA section of this catalog, or on the Study Abroad website. Students interested in any of these programs should consult with an academic advisor as early as possible.

American Studies Program

This program, set in Washington, D.C., is ideal for students who want a better grasp of communications within government agencies. The program, run by the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, provides public policy discussion and coursework along with opportunities for both public relations and journalistic internships. See the CCCU website for additional information.

New York City Study and Intern

Students in journalism have found success in the coursework and internships provided by the New York City semester in journalism offered by The King's College. The program involves coursework from a biblical world-view with media opportunities in the nation's number one media market.

Washington D.C. Journalism and PR opportunities

The Fund for American Studies and various other D.C.-based study and internship opportunities have been a successful fit for Biola Journalism students. These programs offer courses and internship opportunities that parallel elements of our majors. Many Biola grads in Journalism have made successful career entry in D.C.

Field Production Trips

The Department of Digital Journalism and Media offers special-topic, elective workshops for variable credit during some semesters that provide students hands-on experience in reporting, writing or visual journalism. Recent workshops have taken students to New York and Washington, D.C. for insights into political journalism; other trips involved travel to central Mexico for documentary photojournalism projects, and to Texas for insights on business aspects of free-lance photography. Other means of providing students with practical off-campus media experience are Travel Journalism and Cross-cultural Storytelling Project, a course set either in the U.S or overseas, guiding students in feature-writing, documentary photojournalism, video work or audio projects.

Program Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of the Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Integrated Media, students will be able to:

  1. Students will evaluate journalistic processes (ULO 1).
  2. Students will analyze journalistic work that reflects biblical truth-telling within cross-cultural storytelling (ULO 1).
  3. Students will construct a digital presence showcasing their pre-professional expertise (ULO 3).
  4. Students will create effective, journalistic writing pieces either expected of entry-level media professionals or about journalism (ULO 3).
  5. Students will produce journalistic projects that are reflective of their concentration’s specialization of dynamic, journalistic storytelling (ULO 3).

Each Program Learning Outcome (PLO) listed above references at least one of the University Learning Outcomes (ULO 1, 2, 3), which may be found in the General Information section of this catalog.

Senior Portfolio Review and Summit Presentation

All students in the Department of Digital Journalism and Media are expected to complete a portfolio review as well as a public presentation before graduating.

The portfolio consists of the student's best work, completed through coursework or internships during the time they have been enrolled in the major. The review will be completed by a committee of full-time faculty (with input from a professional outside of the institution) as well as by the instructor for the Media Capstone course during the selected semester.

The student's portfolio will be rated for competency or non-competency. Competent work can also be rated as exemplary. Students whose portfolio does not earn at least a competency rating must re-submit their portfolio to the Review Committee or retake the course (if the grade requires such).

Also as part of the graduation and Capstone course requirements, students will prepare and submit a proposal to be approved for a public presentation (most likely at the department Summit) on a topic of expertise or project they have developed during their time as a student.

Timing of the portfolio review and public presentation ideally will be the semester before graduating (typically Fall semester of the senior year in a normal four-year undergraduate cycle). 

Traditional students should schedule a preliminary portfolio review with their academic advisor at the end of five semesters to plan successful completion of the portfolio review and presentation. Transfer students should schedule a preliminary portfolio review after two semesters.

Scheduling of the Senior Portfolio review and public presentation will be completed as part of the Capstone course requirements. Any exception to this plan must be approved by the full-time faculty.

Internship

Internship, comprising a total of 3 credits, is required for graduation in the Journalism and Integrated Media major. Students will complete the 1-credit course, JOUR 344 Media Internship, as well as the 2-credit course, JOUR 444 Advanced Internship & Career Preparation. Students may take JOUR 344 multiple times to complete more internships for credit. Students, guided by their academic advisor, are encouraged to pursue other (non-credit) internships to gain as much hands-on experience as possible before their senior year. Students must take the internship courses as ordered by prerequisites, but internships (for credit or for non-credit) may be completed any semester or during the Summer under supervision of department faculty, guided by stipulations of the Internship packet.

No more than 6 credits of Internship may be applied toward major requirements. Total directed research and special topic workshop credits may not exceed 9 credits.

Curriculum Requirements

All Journalism and Integrated Media majors must achieve a minimum grade of "C" in all major courses taken at Biola. Anyone receiving a lower grade must repeat the course and earn a "C" or better. The total number of credits for major area credit from internship and directed research may not exceed 9 credits.
