Broadcast Journalism is not merely an elective at our school it is the first step of a lifelong journey for many students. Our alumnae go on to study at top media and filmmaking programs around the country such as USC, Syracuse University, NYU, and Elon. One out of every two broadcast alumnae pursue careers in communications, media, and filmmaking.
Our Alumnae Media Network connects graduates of Sacred Heart who work in the media with current students for internships, mentorships, and potential jobs.
