About Us

The School of Media and Public Affairs (SMPA) is dedicated to the study of media, journalism, and political communication with a focus on the connections between ideas and information and how the media inform and influence policy and politics in a democracy. As the only school of its kind in the capital of politics and media, we bring Washington into the classroom. Students engage with the world around them through internships and access to decision-makers, community leaders, and power brokers.
