Through work on the award-winning Arizona Daily Wildcat, the Wildcat Online, KAMP Student Radio and UATV-3, students gain hands-on experience in writing, editing, design, broadcasting, film, marketing and promotions, advertising, computer graphics, website development, photography and accounting, among other areas of media management.
