The Donald W. Reynolds School of Journalism and Center for Advanced Media Studies at the University of Nevada, Reno is a dynamic, student-centered program with great momentum and a focus on the future. We’ve invested $8 million in facility renovations and technology upgrades, positioned our Center for Advanced Media Studies to promote scholarship and media innovation, and launched the Nevada Media Alliance — a multiplatform production partnership with regional media.

The scenic University of Nevada, Reno campus, which looks out on the Sierra Nevada mountains, is located 45 minutes from Lake Tahoe and four hours from San Francisco and the Napa-Sonoma wine country. Reno is home to an up-and-coming technology sector and a vibrant arts and restaurant scene, with great outdoor recreational opportunities and an affordable cost of living.
