Ayumi Hattori, reporter, Washington D.C. Bureau, TV Asahi, 2008 graduate.
school has been the most personally rewarding chapter of my life. It is
a tremendous challenge as well as great fun! The depth of understanding
and renewed appreciation for journalisms place in our society is
applicable in every aspect of my return to the newsroom.
Marilyn Brown, reporter, Tampa Tribune, 1999 graduate.
People who have been in the profession a long time
dont necessarily want to take graduate level how-to courses. But
they might want to contemplate journalisms current role in our
world, its stature as a powerful element in society and the way it wields
its influence. The USF program offers a chance to hop out of the trenches
and reexamine what it is that weve spent our lives doing.
Jon Wilson, reporter, St. Petersburg Times, 2003 graduate.
The class gave me a solid foundation to enable me
to pursue my doctorate at the University of Missouri School of Journalism.
The faculty encourages invigorating discussions and offers strong support
to its students. The journalism program at USF St. Petersburg is a jewel
and an experience not to be missed.
Susan Willey, Ph.D., assistant professor of journalism at Florida Atlantic University, 1995
When I first began attending graduate classes at USF,
I had almost 25 years of experience as a journalist. I had taught journalism
at a state university. So what could I learn at USF? A lot. Journalism
is a profession in which you grow stale fast if youre not challenged.
USF offered me the challenges. The courses sharpened my thinking on
the foundations of our craft.
John Sugg, senior editor, Weekly Planet.
Most of us dont read journalism theory or study
law and ethics, scientific research methods or new techniques in storytelling
after we leave college. My time at USF offered me an updated and insight
that I could never have gained alone and would dearly miss if I had
not gone through the Journalism Studies program.
Espen Reiss Mathiesen, reporter, Stavanger Aftenbald, Stavanger,
Norway, 1997-98 Fulbright Scholar, 1999 graduate.
The law and ethics classes at USF St.
Petersburg were informative and interesting. Its rewarding to
know Im able to apply the things learned in those classes to the
rigorous task of feeding the daily beast.
