Amherst Wire TV: Student Video Productions
AmherstWireTV.com is a portal for the students of the UMass Amherst Department of Journalism to begin reaching the world. Real journalism needs a real outlet, and this is where our broadcast and on line students can showcase their work.
Students have the freedom to go where their curiosity and creativity take them, while we focus them on good storytelling, strong writing, and powerful visuals. We give them hands-on training in professional media.
Our students learn the classic values of journalism, as outlined by Bill Kovach and Tom Rosenstiel in their book The Elements of Journalism, “an obligation to the truth… loyalty to the citizens… and a discipline of verification.”
