Guests

One of the major goals of the WKU Photojournalism program is to build and maintain a close relationship with journalists in the profession. Over the years, these professionals have enhanced the students’ learning experience through lectures, hands-on demonstrations, class critiques and one-on-one mentoring. They continue to make a vital contribution to the success of our program.
