LCCC, YSU Collaborate to Offer Jouralism Degree in Lorain County

Lorain County Community College and Youngstown State University are partnering to train future journalists to meet the growing demand for journalists in countless industries.

Students will be able to obtain a bachelor’s degree in journalism offered by YSU through the LCCC University Partnership.

Students completing LCCC’s journalism courses will seamlessly move into YSU’s bachelor’s program. YSU’s journalism courses will be offered online, allowing students to complete their degree without ever having to leave the LCCC campus.

This integrated program will provide significant cost savings for students, said
John Crooks, associate provost of the University Partnership program at LCCC.

“The YSU Journalism Program is an excellent addition to the
University Partnership and it provides a pathway for those students planning
careers in journalism and related fields,” Crooks said.

Martin Abraham, interim provost at YSU, said the YSU journalism program has been nationally recognized as an excellent training ground for students who are interested in professions beyond journalism.

“Because of its strong liberal arts core, coupled with its intense focus on experiential learning, YSU journalism graduates have a versatile gateway degree that enables them to find meaningful careers where critical thinking, information gathering and production skills are needed,” Abraham said.

“I cannot think of too many industries where these skills are not in demand today,” Abraham said.

Alyssa Lenhoff-Briggs, director of the YSU Journalism Program, said she knows that LCCC has a strong journalism program. “LCCC has been doing an excellent job of teaching students the basics of
journalism. When they hand off students to us, I am certain that they will be ready to excel,” Lenhoff-Briggs said.

YSU operates the nationally recognized experiential learning initiative, TheNewsOutlet.org. The News Outlet, which started at YSU, is a collaboration among YSU, The University of Akron and The University of
Cincinnati. Students report and produce stories for legacy media
organizations throughout Ohio. It has won numerous state and national awards and grants for its work.
