Major: Journalism & Mass Communication
I knew I wanted to be a reporter and I thought the best place to cover politics would be at a school that teaches it in the intersection of media and government.
Students can apply to major in either Journalism and Mass Communication or Political Communication. Both programs offer a critical mix of theory and practice to understand the rapidly evolving media environment. We also offer a minor in Journalism and Mass Communication.
Our graduate programs prepare students for the evolving communications landscape with a combination of core courses in theory and media skills. Students develop a tailored foundation for careers in advocacy, government, media relations, public opinion, journalism or academia.
