The New Media track focuses on journalism through the ever-changing social media. There is also a Business Journalism major offered through the Business School. Available Journalism courses include:

The students in the Journalism department create a newsletter and magazine each year highlighting news for the University.

Students are encouraged to participate in all of the University publications to develop their skill and build their portfolio.
The Journalism department also offers study abroad programs for its students including Baylor in London and Baylor in New York.
