Journalism and communication is our passion. And it shows. Students and faculty know each other by name and work closely together. Students find a dynamic place to build the skills they need to work as professionals in media and communication or to move on to careers in education. Faculty members find support and dedicated research resources. Our research centers and Reilly Center for Media & Public Affairs support innovative research and bring in nationally-known professionals. Our emphasis on media and public affairs supports one of the only graduate programs in the country focused on this area of study.
