All Journalism majors create a digital portfolio comprised of projects, papers, and related professional materials. Compiled throughout your college career, the Communication Portfolio functions as a kind of "billboard" for your abilities, skills, and knowledge by presenting significant academic and professional accomplishments.  It may include (with examples):

  • publications (news articles, stories you "pitched" and that were carried by the press)
  • multimedia (podcasts, websites, videos)
  • design work (brochures, programs, posters)
  • academic writing (term papers, thesis)
  • professional writing (reports, manuals, blogs)


Creating your Communication Portfolio is an exercise in gathering together work you've previously produced and then presenting it in a compelling and attractive fashion. Each term, the School hosts a Portfolio Review Day when seniors present their portfolio work in a public space for review and comment by faculty, staff and peers.
