Secondary Education

Journalism  0027

Ball State has a long-standing, strong connection with high school journalism education. If you’ve attended one of our high school journalism workshops, you already know that.

Our secondary education program, regarded as one of the best in the state and the nation, is a hands-on program that prepares students to become top-notch high school and middle school journalism teachers and publication advisors.

As with the other journalism sequences, there is plenty of room for individualization. You will develop a strong journalism foundation with courses in the Department of Journalism and will also take many education courses through Ball State’s highly regarded Teachers College in order to gain further knowledge and practical experience in education.

You will learn journalism teaching methods and how to advise scholastic newspapers, yearbooks, magazines, and online media. And we encourage to develop your own philosophies of education. The final segment of your studies will include a semester of secondary school participation and a semester of student teaching.

We maintain a strong connection to those already in the field of secondary education in journalism through our outreach services to high school and middle school teachers and students. Activities include one-day journalism workshops for those at the high school and junior high levels as well as the summer journalism workshops for which Ball State is well known.
