Educating new generations of journalists and upholding the standards of journalistic excellence has been our mission since we opened nearly a century ago.
Our degree programs -- the Master of Science, the Master of Arts, and the Ph.D. in Communications -- are intensive, rigorous and demanding. The quality, vitality and innovation of our programs remain unsurpassed, providing the foundation and opportunity for students not only to succeed, but to shape the future of journalism.
Our faculty are preeminent in their fields. They are award-winning reporters, columnists, authors, magazine editors, documentary filmmakers, and new media specialists. They are experienced, independent thinkers with a history of personal accomplishment who are deeply committed to teaching, challenging, and supporting their students.
The prizes and awards we administer, including the Pulitzer Prizes and the duPont-Columbia Awards, are internationally known.
Our continuing education seminars and workshops offer opportunities for seasoned practitioners and media executives to advance their knowledge and expertise.
