Journalism

The Reynolds School of Journalism and Center for Advanced Media Studies is one of 110 full-accredited U.S. journalism and mass communication programs. Our faculty members include endowed chairs in business journalism, media ethics and science communication.

At the undergraduate level, the school prepares students for “multi-platform storytelling,” whether in the service of news, public relations and advertising, Spanish-language media or visual communication. Our master’s program prepares graduate students to develop new media firms, products and practices. Our programs encourage an inclusive learning environment that supports students from all backgrounds and walks of life.

The Reynolds School is highly regarded within the university, within the community, within the professional media community of Nevada and around the country. Members of the faculty serve in important roles on university committees, interact with media professionals throughout the state and are active in national organizations such as the AEJMC, PRSA, RTNDA and SPJ.

We partner with the College of Engineering around digital media innovation, with the College of Business around entrepreneurship and with the School of Medicine around health communication. The school founded the first chapter of Sigma Delta Chi (Society for Professional Journalists) in Nevada, as well as the Nevada State Press Association, the Nevada Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (and PRSSA) and the nation’s ninth chapter of Kappa Tau Alpha, the national journalism honor society.

The Reynolds School of Journalism boasts six Pulitzer Prize-winning graduates and two national Edward R. Murrow Awards for its bilingual partnership with KUNR Public Radio. Our students continue to win national competitions in the areas of advertising, public relations, photo and print journalism, among others. Enrollment at the school has grown steadily, with more than 450 undergraduate majors and minors, and twenty master degree students.
