As a recent graduate of the School of Journalism at the University of Minnesota, I get excited everytime I speak with students interested in journalism. The School of Journalism offers a few different areas of study with excellent opportunities for students to get involved both on and off campus.
Includes both broadcasting and print journalism. Within these programs students are able to gain knowledge and expertise to be successful as a professional journalist in areas such as magazine writing, newspaper writing, editing, photojournalism and television and radio broadcasting.
Professional Strategic Communications:
The strategic communications track in the School of Journalism provides students with learning opportunities that build strong critical thinking and communication skills and professional skills in the fields of advertising and public relations.
Located in a large metropolitan area, the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities offers excellent opportunities for students to gain professional experiences in journalism, public relations, and advertising.
The College of Liberal Arts Career Services Office offers support for students looking for internship and job opportunities. They offer walk-in hours, tips for major and career exploration, on-campus interviews for jobs and internships and even a website with internship and job opportunities.
The Minnesota Daily is a campus newspaper run entirely by U of M students offers students jobs in advertising, editing, and newspaper writing both for print journalism and online media.
Radio K is the University of Minnesota's student-run radio station that plays eclectic array of independent music. These are two excellent opportunities for students to gain valuable professional experiences while staying within the comforts of the campus.
The University of Minnesota offers over 600 student organizations. A quick search of the Student Unions and Activities website displays 10 other student organizations under the Publication and Communications category, including our award-winning National Student Advertising Competition team.
With countless opportunities to get involved its easy to see why the School of Journalism attracts some of the most articulate, passionate students in the country!
