UNC School of Media and Journalism

At the UNC School of Media and Journalism, we believe in the transformational power of communication. Informed debate and discussion are at the heart of democracy. It’s up to us to train and inspire the next generation with the tools, insights and values to ignite the public conversation in our state, nation and world. Today’s society gathers and interacts with information in ever-evolving ways. The UNC School of Media and Journalism is on the cutting edge of that change. We analyze data, connect it to the public and deliver it with complete and accurate storytelling. Our graduates are responsible, creative and dynamic communicators who understand media business models. With your support, we can maximize their impact on society and the industries we serve.
