"We’re very fortunate to be given an experience that is about as close to the real world as we can get."

Become a new media pro. Help lead the information revolution.


You see the news alerts on your phone. Who makes it happen? With Lyndon’s Electronic Journalism Arts major (EJA), it can be you. News and information systems need trained professionals to get stories right and get them out fast. Discover deadline drama, the thrill of posting bulletins first, and the awesome responsibility that comes with an audience that depends on your judgment. A Lyndon EJA degree is the credential you need to grab the new media world by the tail.

At Lyndon, EJA students learn their profession in a unique real-world laboratory atmosphere: News 7. Real issues, real deadlines, and a real audience: this isn’t classroom journalism. It’s better. Learn to cover stories, ask questions, and use gut judgment in the clutch. Acquire production skills that matter whether your content goes out via smartphone, Twitter, our NewsLINC website, or News 7.

And, Lyndon’s program is rated the top 25 journalism program three years in a row.

We are NEBHE eligible (tuition discount) in ALL New England States (CT, MA, ME, NH, RI). But we go better than that with our stackable awards.

The converged newsroom:

Once upon a time newspapers printed stories and TV newsrooms shot and produced them. Today those boundaries are gone. The
converged newsroom at Lyndon does it all—so you are prepared for a future in this business.

Since 1979, local residents in 14 surrounding towns have been informed by the student-produced live broadcasts of LSC’s Emmy award-winning News 7. Today that broadcast reaches beyond our regional boundary with live streaming of the evening broadcast as well as news posts from the field.

Our graduates: Wherever there’s news…

Lyndon’s nearly one thousand alumni are at work at top media organizations navigating the jump from old ways to new. They’re the architects of the  information revolution. They see what’s coming. They alert Lyndon grads to professional opportunities others may never hear about. There’s no better way to crack the new media world.

The experiential nature of the program is unmatched in all of New England and perhaps the U.S.
