Main Campus Completed Projects
Newsroom of the Future
- One of the most technologically advanced newsrooms in the country is scheduled to open this fall at Stony Brook University’s School of Journalism.
- The bi-level newsroom in the Melville Library at the center of campus will serve as the journalism program’s primary teaching space and laboratory for print, broadcast and online courses. Floor to ceiling windows, stretching the length of the newsroom, will allow an up-close view of Stony Brook’s student-journalists at work. A 40-foot news ticker will keep passersby informed of the latest local, national and international news. TV monitors will also be visible to those strolling by the bustling newsroom.
- Equipped with state-of-the-art digital technology, students will work across all print, broadcast and online platforms, replicating the environment of a fast-paced, multi-media newsroom. On the main level, students will train on cutting-edge digital editing equipment, learn to shoot with high-definition digital cameras and create Web content that will be shared online with the entire university.
- The lower level will feature a broadcast news set, control room, news conference area and workstations equipped for digital video and online editing. Newsrooms at Stony Brook’s Manhattan and Southampton campuses will be linked to the main newsroom to allow three-way visual communication for students and professors.
- The learning curve for our journalism students is the world. And the world is a pretty fascinating place. They will learn to report, write about and video history in the making from the people who’ve been there and done that at Newsday, Associated Press, CBS, NBC and other news organizations. They’ll learn to be competitive in the changing world of global media. They’ll be the best.
