The publications:
All media publications generated in the program are open-forum outlets for student expression. Although the media are advised by Justin Raisner, the content is generated and approved by the students.

Students complete coursework on ethics, legal issues, and writing before being accepted onto the staff of any publication.

Highlander newsmagazine is published several times a year and offers a mix of reporting, analysis, criticism, and commentary. Although timely, there is less "breaking news" in the print edition and more focus on deeper feature-based reporting. Highlander was established in 2008 as a newspaper and has since evolved into a full-color newsmagazine.
