We attract people aspiring to high-impact careers in our rapidly changing media world. A keen sense of urgency about civic life and technology propels them; academic and journalistic principles guide them. Our graduates will not just make a difference in the world, they will be the difference.
In these times, journalism is more essential, intense and challenging than ever. The people who lead it must be passionate, courageous and exceptional, not just in the practice of journalism but in elevating it.
Our faculty includes nationally recognized researchers, Emmy and Pulitzer Prize winners. MSU’s unique team of academics and professionalism helps people elevate their careers with the analytical tools that will help them leverage these changes and become continuous innovators. When academics and professionals collaborate, new ideas are born.
We offer top-tier training in visual and written storytelling and environmental and science journalism. The world is our lab with the capital of one of the nation’s political swing states nearby and a perennial Big Ten sports powerhouse on campus.
