301 Reynolds School of Journalism
The Donald W. Reynolds School of Journalism helps undergraduate and graduate students turn their passion for storytelling into careers in news, broadcasting and documentary, advertising and public relations, Spanish-language media, media studies and visual communication. Our programs encourage an inclusive learning environment that supports students from all backgrounds and walks of life.
The school balances enduring values of fair and ethical communication with emerging practices and new technologies. Students prepare for the professional world with experiential learning in the school’s own production centers and agencies as well as with its media partners. Alumni go on to make a difference in their communities and across the world through the stories they tell and the causes they support.
The Reynolds School is one of 110 fully-accredited U.S. journalism and mass communication programs. Our faculty members include endowed chairs in business journalism, media ethics and science communication.
We partner with the College of Engineering around digital media innovation, with the College of Business around entrepreneurship, with the College of Liberal Arts in Spanish-language media and with the School of Medicine around health communication. Our student teams in advertising and public relations have won national and regional competitions.
The Donald W. Reynolds School of Journalism is accredited by the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications. Accreditation was first granted in 1970.
