We believe students learn by doing. Our students get out of the classroom and into the real world – here in Missoula, around the state and beyond. They: 

  • Report on stories ranging from hard news to features
  • Travel to towns across the West for photo and video shoots
  • Produce award-winning television, online, radio, print and photo stories and documentaries
  • Cover Native American issues, sports, politics, the environment
  • Host and produce radio programs

Our mission is to provide students with a professional education in journalism; to teach them to think critically, act ethically and communicate effectively; to help them understand the challenges and changes in the news media; and to inspire them to use their talents to improve journalism and enhance a diverse and democratic society.
