Why Study Magazine Media at Drake
Interested in studying Magazine Media?
Learn about the Magazine Major in the Drake University School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
After graduation, Alysse Gear’s first job was somewhere most journalism majors would strive for —a widely circulated and historic publication. It was at that publication where Gear discovered her true passion, which led her out of the office and onto the farm.
In classes and events throughout the week, students took the opportunities to meet with professionals and industry veterans to learn how journalism is evolving.
She’s done freelance photography and graphic design work for everything from Family Circle magazine to Rolling Stone, and it is her education at Drake that prepared her for every job she’s taken on.
