Thank you for your interest in the School of Communication and Journalism! In the 21st century, information is power and communication skills are in high-demand. Our mission is to foster the development of exemplary communicators as industry leaders, scholars, professionals and educators through innovative curricula, research, practice and opportunities. We emphasize hands-on, experiential learning projects for audiences and actual clients beyond the classroom. I encourage you to consider how our majors, minors and extracurricular activities can help you be valued, get hired and make a difference!
