Currents Magazine

Student Journalism

Seaver students have the opportunity to work on our nationally acclaimed weekly newspaper the Graphic, online Graphic and Currents Magazine. Faculty advisers to these publications bring decades of experience as daily newspaper and magazine editors, in addition to providing students with expertise in communication law, in-depth reporting, ethics and religious journalism.

Currents Magazine


Each semester students interested in magazine journalism publish a glossy publication featuring new and interesting stories about Pepperdine students and the community that surrounds Pepperdine.
