A three and a half year program for aspiring journalists hoping to gain expertise, with a focus on challenges and opportunities in industry.

Zeynab Wandati - “After my graduation on August 21st 2010, I started off my journalism career with an internship in September at Citizen TV, which lasted four months. By March 2011, I had joined Nation Media Media Group, for a one year training program called the Media Lab, and by the end of the year I was at NTV. Today, I report for NTV Business, with a keen interest in agriculture. I am grateful to USIU for shaping me into the journalist I am today, especially when it comes to ethics and code of conduct of the profession.”

Chris Sang – “The freedom and support I got from USIU and its staff and faculty to pursue my interests in film and T.V production inspired me to go ahead and start my own production company. Now I work as a freelancer in the Film and T.V industry as well as running my own production company.”

Carlos Muriithi - Correspondent -- 'Sunday Nation', Nation Media Group “USIU education prepared me for a career in journalism and beyond. It equipped me with relevant skills and it helped shape my ideas. In addition, it taught me how to confidently face the outside world.”

The Journalism program encourages students to get involved in a student organization such as the journalism club, public speaking to enhance their skills. However, within the program, the students will work pro bono for other departments in the school in production of videos for school events such as Mr & Miss USIU, student awards, culture week, black history month, and any other as requested by other interested parties. They also are selected at most times to take part in MC roles, DJ roles, support of PR and publicity persons for university events. Besides, the department has established an internal film internship program that recruits students to participate in project based film production activities. In a bid to combine theory and practice, faculty has embarked on a curriculum that encourages students to submit practical projects as part of their grades. Ideally, per semester, students develop documentaries, news features, and present work in photography and participate in mock PR event organization that is consumed by the USIU fraternity. Students are encouraged in their senior project course to create a portfolio based on the area of journalism they are passionate about. Over the years, some of these items in their portfolios include autobiographical books, organization of media ethics conference, organization of lifestyle events, video production on issue of their choice and photo galleries. The journalism program operate the USIU 99.9 FM station which is student ran with full administration and has programming that runs from Monday to Sunday and has a listenership that is 5kms radius from the institution.

The journalism program from time to time organizes academic conferences both local and international with the aim of peer interaction enhancing research from an African context. The journalism program also organizes interuniversity journalism students fair, film festivals, film competitions, round table discussions, international students media exposure on African media experience. The students also organize PR events, exhibitions and photo galleries to exhibit their works. There is also a student run newspaper, the “gazette” and the magazine “sauti” both that are published every semester. Every so often, the USIU radio organizes a publicity event called “radioactive”

The USIU Bachelor of Arts in Journalism program is fairly new, (less about 11 years old), having been introduced in 1999 with an enrollment of 16 students. The program has grown rapidly since then to the current total enrolment of 317 students (Spring Semester 2014). This growth is attributable to the expansion of the mass media market in Kenya, especially after the liberalization of the air-waves in the early 1990s. This liberalization resulted in the formation of numerous commercial radio and TV stations that demanded a commensurate number of trained broadcast journalists. The print media sector has also seen significant growth.

In order to respond to these changes and demand in the market, the program has also grown from offering only one concentration (Print Media), to the current three existing concentrations that include Electronic Media and Public Relations.

The Journalism Program has over the years worked with other organizations to enhance its role in the media fraternity. For the last seven years, the Journalism program has been collaborating with Gimleköllen School of Journalism and Communication, Kristiansand, Norway in journalism short courses for visiting Norwegian students. The USIU Journalism Program has launched capacity building short courses for media practitioners over the summer semester.

The USIU Journalism Program is designed as per the requirements of the two accrediting bodies, the Commission for University Education (CUE) and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).

The university has been able to equip the TV and video production training facilities. The equipping process of the program begun in 2007, and for the TV and video editing, the faculty decided right from the start the editing technology will be based on Mac platform and to date, the program has acquired a total of 16 computer, two (2) PowerMacs and 14 twenty-inch iMacs all housed in the two TV Editing suites within Dr. Lillian K. Beam Building (ICT Centre). The university administration has also invested substantially to set up a campus radio station, primarily to give the journalism students hands-on experience. The station is equipped with state of the art technology that enables the students to keep abreast with the latest technology in the market today.

Other facilities created to serve the journalism program include the print Journalism Content Creation room. The facility serves as the news room for Print Media concentration students where they practice news writing and editing for publication within the student publications – The Gazette and its sister Sauti magazine.

In 2009 the university acquired top of the range TV broadcast equipment to boost the Electronic media concentration, and prepare for a possible expansion into Film Production and Advertising courses.

We are currently running the latest software like adobe CS6 for our MAC computers and jazler for the radio station.
