School of Global Journalism & Communication

WEAA is a division of the School of Global Journalism & Communication at Morgan State University

WEAA offers a unique opportunity for students to gain the experience of industry experts in the field of journalism by becoming assignment reporters. Students will be assigned stories that will offer them the experience of professional journalist by following leads, writing scripts, interviewing subjects, and editing vignettes.

Today, the mission of Morgan State University's School of Global Journalism and Communication is to give a voice to a broader group of people - people who struggle to contribute to the public discourse that shapes this nation and the world. We serve this cause with innovative teaching, cutting edge research, and exemplary service to Maryland, our nation, and the world.

Our goal is to add to the diversity of thoughts, opinions and beliefs by offering students from a wide range of backgrounds the liberal arts education and skills training they need to effectively communicate ideas - to plead their own causes, or to accurately tell the stories of others.

In our global school, students travel the world in their classes and assignments, without leaving the campus. They also see the world through their interactions with our partner programs at universities in distant lands - and they are offered opportunities to travel abroad in our Worldwide Learning Lab program.

The great advances in technology have turned the world into a global village. The goal of our school is to make our graduates effective communicators in every way - and every corner of this village.

Celebrating Valentine’s Day During a Pandemic

Feb 11, 2021

(SGJC) —The annual Valentine’s Day holiday celebrating love and relationships will look different this year because of a global pandemic. As restaurants, movie theaters, and more date night events are closed because of limited capacity across the country, many couples are being forced to spend the night in their own homes, or in some cases, virtually.

 

BALTIMORE, MD (SGJC) The first HBCU Esports Conference and Career Expo will be held virtually this Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

 Korey Matthews is a native of Baltimore, Maryland, and is currently a senior multimedia journalism major at Morgan State University, set to graduate in May of 2018. His career goal is to one day become an on-air radio host and a media mogul. The WEAA on Assignment series has helped him to tell better, clearer stories, and he has learned through the series how to connect with a diverse audience through the art of oral storytelling. He is extremely appreciative to PNC and WEAA for the opportunity, and he looks forward to working with them again on future projects. 

WEAA on Assignment: Episode 5

Jul 5, 2018

My name is Samuel D. Robinson, and I am senior studying multimedia journalism at Morgan State University. After I graduate, I want to work as a digital reporter and producer. Working with the PNC project was a great experience; I learned how to produce audio and now have that skill set under my belt. If it weren’t for the PNC initiative, I would not have pushed myself to be able to produce audio for the radio. Thanks to PNC for partnering with WEAA 88.9, it helped my career trajectory immensely.
