The digital journalism program equips students with the broad skill set valued in the nation's newsrooms and other communication fields.

On campus, these include KUAC, a public television and radio station; KSUA, the student-owned FM radio station; and the Polaris News, the student-run online news site. Students complete their required professional media internships at a variety of radio and television stations, newspapers and other media-related businesses and organizations in and out of Alaska.
The department runs several laboratory facilities, including a digital newsroom and photography lab, dedicated audio and video bays, an advanced video editing/digital printing lab, two wet darkrooms and a photography studio.
