Our faculty in the Journalism and Entertainment Media department understand that employers value real-world experience. The Beacon is Palm Beach Atlantic University's award-winning digital-only campus news organization. This student-led news outlet follows the motto, "Act locally, think globally" while covering campus, community and national news for both the web and social media platforms.
The Beacon releases daily articles with plenty of opportunities for journalism majors, minors and non-majors to get invovled. While working for the organziation, students will have the opportunity to plan stories, conduct interviews, write articles, shoot video and take photos - all while gaining real newsroom experience.
In addition to hands-on learning, working for The Beacon helps students to create and expand their portfolio and newsreel with every assignment.
