Saint Joseph’s College in Rensselaer has been awarded a $25,000 grant by the George B. Quatman Foundation to put toward technology for the college’s new digital media and journalism major. The major, which the college is implementing this semester, is designed to educate students to become multi-media storytellers. Students receive hands-on experience in journalism, multimedia production and the field’s technology. The Department of Communication plans to use the grant to purchase high-definition cameras for the college’s television studio. This is the third grant that Saint Joseph’s College has received from the George B. Quatman Foundation. In 2008, the foundation awarded $10,000 to the college to renovate the Robinson Memorial Library, and in 2005, the college was awarded $25,000 to renovate the Evans Arts and Science Building Theatre.
