Build Your Own Media Major

A Journalism degree from the Reynolds School is more than traditional print and broadcast training. We’re training the next generation of media makers for jobs that might not even exist yet. We’re looking for students who want to experiment, play and push the current boundaries of media forward. We focus on three main areas of study: news, strategic communications and visual design. However, students are encouraged to mix and match courses to meet their unique interests and vision. As a school we promote a learning culture built on diversity, respect and inclusiveness across our programs.
