Our journalism program teaches students to write effectively, enhances their research and interviewing skills, and develops their critical thinking skills. The program also increases student understanding of the media and its impact on their lives and perceptions about society.

The Communicator, SFCC's student newspaper, provides opportunities for students to do the writing, editing, photography and layout involved in publishing a newspaper. The staff sees the production process through from beginning to end, gaining valuable experience for professional opportunities, acquiring skills that can be used in a variety of areas. Students may register in College News courses for 1 to 5 credits.

The journalism program is housed within the department of Applied Visual Arts so that it may more easily collaborate and share resources with other programs within the department, primarily photography and graphic design. For more information about other programs and their faculty please visit the web pages of the Applied Visual Arts department.
