Careers in Journalism

Los Medanos College offers a variety of journalism courses to prepare you for a writing and editing career. The publishing industry is undergoing rapid and profound technological changes, and the Journalism Program at LMC is seeking to keep pace. Through grants over the past few years we have acquired new Macintosh computers and a large-scale printer, as well as digital still and video cameras. Many students who honed their talents – writers, editors, photographers, paginators and graphic artists – on the college newspaper now work at the Brentwood News, Concord Transcript and Contra Costa Times as a result of their publication experience at LMC.
