The motto for the Reynolds School of Journalism is ‘All Things Media,’ which means the School prepares students to work as ‘multimedia storytellers’ in the fast-changing fields of communication. Our graduates have distinguished themselves in news, in advertising and public relations, in social media and in video production and visual design. Six Reynolds School graduates have been awarded the Pulitzer Prize, journalism’s highest honor.
The Reynolds School recently underwent an $8-million renovation, so students get to work with the latest in digital technology, including an HD-quality video studio. Our students get real-world experience by covering state government through our Nevada Media Alliance news service; and by developing communication campaigns for actual clients. For example, the Nevada Department of Transportation is using a safety campaign created by RSJ students.
We are the only journalism school in the nation to partner with NPR to train students for careers in public media. And, new for 2015, the Reynolds School is offering a new Health Communication program in partnership with the University of Nevada School of Medicine and Department of Psychology.
Are you looking for a job in the new communications environment? Do you want to understand the changes in media that are transforming our world? Then consider a master’s degree in journalism from the Reynolds School. Are you seeking a program where a wide range of electives allows you to plan a course of study uniquely suited to your own interests? We have designed an accelerated graduate program to educate an emerging class of innovative professionals who work at the intersection of journalism, strategic communication and social media.
Our graduates go on to become social media managers, community connectors, business developers, entrepreneurial journalists, content strategists, multimedia creators, reporters, writers and public relations professionals.
We offer a three-semester intensive graduate program for students who have a journalism/ communications background and want to hone their skills to become next-generation media communicators. For students without journalism experience, we offer classes to prepare you for work in our graduate program.
