We aren’t your parent’s school of journalism…
Did you know that ninety-percent of Reynolds School students are employed within six months of graduation? With such a high college-to-career placement rate why wouldn’t you want to study here?
Small class sizes give our students the opportunity to fully engage with professors who bring many decades of professional experience to the classroom. Our professors are committed to student success, mentoring them every step of the way.
You should study with us because our students produce real-world, professional work, and The Reynolds School provides a platform for their work to be seen. Take the Nevada Media Alliance, for example. In the spring of 2013 the Reynolds School of Journalism launched the Nevada Media Alliance. Created to provide advanced multiplatform reporting on topics of public interest, The Alliance is comprised of eight undergraduate students serving as reporters, three graduate students serving as editors, and faculty member Mike Marcotte serving as Senior Supervisor. What is particularly innovative about The Alliance is that it operates as a public service news cooperative working in collaboration with regional news media. Media partners include the Reno-Gazette Journal (RGJ), KNPB public television and KUNR public radio. This hands-on learning focus gives our graduates a competitive edge in today’s job market.
In addition to doing real work, The Reynolds School is home to the latest in multimedia technology thanks to a recent renovation. Approximately $7.9 million went in to the renovation, making the Reynolds School one of the most technologically advanced facilities on campus. The new technological infrastructure further strengthens the School’s ability to educate multiplatform (print, broadcast, radio, digital) professionals trained in the essentials and ethics of journalism and strategic communication.
Perhaps at the center of the remodel is the Multimedia Newsroom, along with the accompanying Audio Control Room, Audio Studio and Clarence and Martha Jones Production Control. In the Newsroom, an anchor desk, studio lighting, a ceiling-mounted sky camera, edit bays and workstations allow students to work together in a connected environment very similar to many media newsrooms today. In fact, the Newsroom will allow the students to use Associated Press systems for workflow and news management. These areas are also used by students practicing pitches for public relations, advertising and marketing presentations. Here they tape their presentations and watch and critique themselves. They too will need to be able to use this technology in their fields after graduation.
Our small class sizes and innovative technology combines with an accomplished faculty to create a dynamic learning community. Join us. We know you’ll find what you need to succeed.
We are all things media. We are The Reynolds School.
