From covering the cops in your hometown to covering wars and earthquakes in far-off foreign lands, journalism is one of the most exciting jobs out there. Bucks gives you the training you need to launch your career in print and online journalism.
Lots of colleges try to teach journalism from a textbook. Not us. From the first day of class, you'll be fanning out across campus and hitting the streets to cover real stories for the Centurion, Bucks' award-winning student newspaper. In the process you'll pick up the skills you'll need to make it as a journalist in the real world.
If you join our program you won't be just another student - you'll be a staff reporter for the Centurion, covering real stories on a real deadline for a real byline. Or maybe you'll be an editor, assigning articles and editing copy. Or maybe a photographer, or a website designer. Whatever your interests, we have a job for you.
Many of our students have transferred to journalism programs at Temple University and Rider University, among others.

"Bucks County Community College's journalism program under Professor Rogers not only taught the basics of solid reporting but actually got you out on the street. Unlike many courses I've had, the on-the-ground experience was invaluable and prepared me for my first full-time journalism job."
