If you major in a media or communications field, you will gain hands-on broadcast experience at 89.1 The Wood, KCLC FM, the university's 50,000-watt radio station. Under the guidance of professional management, you will work in all facets of station operation, including programming, promotion, news reporting and writing, marketing, traffic, and on-air announcing.

You will also hone your writing and interviewing skills by working for the student-run Lindenwood Legacy newspaper and Lindenlink online news outlet, as well as writing for KCLC and cable television newscasts. With access to Macintosh and personal computer labs, you’ll also learn desktop publishing and word processing for use in creating various types of publications.

Communications majors may enter an internship program in their junior or senior year to acquire on-the-job experience with a professional broadcast and communications organization. Opportunities exist to intern at St. Louis area radio stations, newspapers, public relations firms, advertising firms, online businesses, and corporations.
