Our students gain the skills to succeed in the new media environment, whether they pursue careers in journalism, advertising, public relations or other communications fields. The A.Q. Miller School of Journalism and Mass Communications is a fully accredited school which offers sequences of study in journalism and strategic communications.
JMC's new curriculum
Faculty, alumni and professionals in the industry collaborated to create a cutting-edge program with an emphasis on communicating across media platforms.
The new major consists of 45 MC hours and two sequences: journalism and strategic communications. All students enter the "JMC Gateway," where they learn hands-on production skills, develop writing techniques in our "JMC Writing Academy" and learn the history and current state of the journalism and strategic communications industry. The remaining curriculum is divided into core classes, techniques classes and conceptual classes.
