JMS Tells the Whole Story

The Department of Journalism and Media Studies provides undergraduate students the tools and technology to hone journalism skills while teaching the craft of finding, framing and telling the story. You’ll gain experience with the latest technological developments, while being grounded in the history, ethics and values of the craft. A secondary goal is preparing our students to become better-equipped citizens, professionals, researchers and community members.
