Wheaton College's Journalism Certificate Program: #kindofabigdeal
This is a spontaneous blog post to brag shamelessly about how amazing Wheaton College’s journalism certificate program students are.

How Do We Save Journalism?

How Do We Save Journalism?
With the way the journalistic economy is trending right now (downward spiral), it would be a miracle to think all print publications will survive worldwide.
