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.

To our new and returning students

We look forward to welcoming all students this fall. Some of you will be on campus while others will be learning online. Wherever you are, please know that we are here to support your learning needs.

The heads of our three programs – Journalism, Communication and Media Studies, and Media Production and Design – are always happy to hear from you, so please get in touch if you have questions.
