Journalism is undergoing an exciting period of change, and we are right in step with it. In some areas, such as investigative reporting, we actually are leaders in the field.

Recently we approved state-of-the art curriculum changes in the area of digital and multimedia journalism for undergraduates. For graduate students, we have made changes with the needs of young professionals in mind. Please see the graduate program on our website for details and information on how to apply.

Our program is suited for future journalists, but we also provide wonderful training in communications skills for people interested in public relations and all forms of communication. Business leaders tell us they welcome these job candidates, and our co-ops provide a wonderful door to the working world. Our students are practicing real journalism and doing work for real clients in our courses as well.

We hope you will explore our website and get to know a little more about our programs and faculty. Let us know if we can answer any questions. For prospective undergraduates, we also have regular open house events and participate in a program run by the College of Arts Media and Design called “First Fridays.” Information on these is available through admissions and the college website. For those interested in the graduate program, please contact our coordinator, Gladys McKie at
