Bachelor's Degree in Journalism

Critical thinking, excellent writing and superb visual communication skills across all media are the hallmarks of our graduates. Congratulations to our 300 students who have won state, regional, national and international awards in just the past four years!

MSU's School of Journalism is light years ahead of the rest in its creativity and imagination to offer students the needed skills to be leaders and visionaries in this exciting, evolving industry. Just ask anyone.

Celebrating more than 100 years of journalism education, we are recognized as one of the best in the nation. Our program is one of the few in the country that has been continuously reaccredited since 1949.

Our exemplary faculty range from international Fulbright scholars to Pulitzer-Prize winning professionals who bring cutting-edge knowledge to students in the classroom and work with them on projects.

Our curriculum is designed to prepare students to step out of the classroom today and into a job tomorrow. In addition to teaching valuable and ethical professional skills, our graduates are known as deep thinkers and motivated doers, and as a result, they are rising stars in the industry and highly successful.

And, our students are strong in a minimum of five ways: 1) critical thinking, 2) writing, 3) understanding visual communication, 4) telling stories across different media and 5) having a broad foundation while achieving in-depth knowledge of a specific area. Faculty inspire students to think "outside the box" to succeed in journalism in yet-undefined ways.

And, our high-tech computer labs have only 20 stations so that students have more individualized attention in these small classes. Each lab is equipped with digital image projection studios. All major software titles for graphics composition, photography, web authoring, and audio and video media editing are installed in each lab. The list of software is found online for students at:

We have fully equipped television production studios, video editing suites and audio recording facilities, in addition to video and audio editing software available in the computer labs. WKAR radio and TV studios and student media labs also are available for classes.
