Palomar College Learning For Success

Palomar College Journalism Department

Educating Tomorrow's Journalists


Welcome to Journalism!


Welcome to the award-winning Journalism Department at Palomar College.

Breaking news: We have added new degrees. Learn more here. Or watch our video.

The Journalism Program offers associate’s degrees and certificates in print and online journalism and social media. Students can pursue coursework in news writing, reporting, editing, photojournalism, public relations, social media and design.

This program doesn’t waste time lecturing students. This is a hands-on program. You will learn skills to get a job in journalism. Students learn by producing Palomar’s student newspaper The Telescope, or campus magazine, called IMPACT magazine. For more information, contact Journalism Professor Erin Hiro at or by calling (760) 744-1150 ext. 3762 Or stop by the new newsroom in Humanities 103.
