Adler Journalism Building

About

Established in 1924, The University of Iowa School of Journalism and Mass Communication has long been recognized as a leader in journalism education. The School has produced thousands of distinguished graduates, and some have gone on to win Pulitzer Prizes, Peabody Awards, and Emmy Awards.

The School of Journalism and Mass Communication undergraduate programs (B.A. and B.S.) prepare students for dynamic careers in many traditional and new fields—working in media industries, or in other industries but within communications, and as entrepreneurs.

The School of Journalism and Mass Communication offers a Master’s in Journalism and Mass Communication, a Master's in Strategic Communication and a Ph.D. in Mass Communication. Each emphasizes individualized inquiry into communication phenomena in a lively intellectual environment. Competitively small program sizes permit students and faculty to work closer together as a community of learners.
