Learn By Doing

If you are interested in telling stories of the world’s people, places and issues through the written word, video, photography and audio, this is the place for you. Ours is a hands-on, fully accredited, nationally renowned school where you can design your own curriculum. You can focus on one particular area of study, or create a more broad educational experience for yourself.

Real-world knowledge is crucial to a journalism education. Through hands-on experiences, the School of Journalism strives to help students think critically about the communities they live in – and find and tell stories that shed light on important topics. Our students learn by doing while reporting at home and across the globe.

We boast a state-of-the-art facility in a vibrant, gorgeous mountain town and an intimate learning environment. You will be required to DO JOURNALISM while you are a student, ending your time here with a professional portfolio of work that will help you land that first job after graduation. Our students produce magazine and newspaper articles and photographs, on-air reports for radio and television, documentary films, and online multimedia reports. They win the top awards and scholarships given to college journalists year after year.

Our faculty has a wealth of experience and we have an open-door policy, so when you need help, our faculty and staff are here for you.

In addition, we have scholarships, work-study opportunities and a variety of financial aid packages to help defray educational costs.
