About the Magazine
Currents Magazine is an award-winning and in-depth feature publication produced once each semester by a team of approximately 25 student journalists who are a part of Pepperdine Graphic Media. The team includes writers, editors, photographers, designers and social media managers. Each semester, Currents goes in-depth on stories that highlight diverse members of the Pepperdine community who are often not heard from in a traditional news context.
The magazine has reported on sex trafficking, religious diversity on campus, plus-size models, farm laborers in the nearby agricultural industry, students who are military veterans, environmental issues, therapy pets, coffee shops, local hiking trails and music festivals, to name a few. It is a publication that truly seeks to serve a wide audience with depth of reporting and storytelling. Although it is a printed magazine, Currents is also a digital publication. The digital content shares an online space with other PGM publications, and the online content helps create and maintain digital readership and engagement. The digital content includes video, additional photos and even language translations of content, when appropriate.
