About the Department

Is your passion telling stories? Do you want to research, report and produce compelling journalism that matters? UC offers the combination of a top-ranked university and a best-in-class journalism education that will propel you into the diverse and dynamic field of journalism.

As a UC journalism major, you’ll study and work with seasoned globetrotting journalism professionals — including Pulitzer Prize-winning faculty – along with faculty in a variety of other interdisciplinary fields such as sociology, anthropology, political science, media design, psychology and more. This holistic approach allows you to develop a more well-rounded theoretical and applied research focus as a professional journalist that will set you apart in the competitive job market.

Here at UC, you’ll gain real-world experiences in an urban, media-rich landscape where you can participate in high-profile work that builds resumes and boosts careers. Our students intern and co-op at exciting media companies where they research and report front-page investigative stories, produce newscasts and podcasts and engage in social media campaigns. They regularly win Emmy awards and prizes in national student media contests. Some students have even won the Pulitzer Prize – before they earned a degree!
