Welcome to our School
An institution with a story stretching back to the early 1940s.
What began as a small School with one Journalism program and seven students in 1945 has grown into an innovative and diverse multi-program community some 1,900-strong.
We offer a Bachelor of Journalism and a Master of Journalism degree. We added a Bachelor of Media Production and Design degree in Fall 2018.
We offer a Bachelor of Communication and Media Studies degree, a Master of Arts in Communication, and a PhD in Communication.
