Let Your Major Be Your Guide
School of Journalism style=

Walter Williams started the world’s first school of journalism in 1908.

The University of Missouri School of Journalism prides itself on being an authority in the field of Journalism - paving the way by employing the latest technologies. Journalism students use a variety of multimedia tools that require the use of a laptop. Having a laptop is vital to a journalist because it allows them to report on the latest news no matter where they are as well as receive the most up to date information as it is happening. 

At all levels of study, the School of Journalism takes a multidisciplinary approach to its curriculum. Community-based news outlets and strategic communication agencies that serve an international-to-local base of clients add real-world experience to each student's education. Our faculty are recognized experts in their fields. A strong focus on scholarship and innovation positions our students to help create the future of journalism.

 The School of Journalism requires all students to have a laptop or computer that is capable of running the Adobe Creative Cloud suite of editing tool. (Please note: certain cloud-based laptops such as Chromebooks do not yet meet this standard.) Licenses are available at a significant discount with your university ID through the University of Missouri's Division of Information Technology. Students are also required to install Microsoft Office 365 Suite, provided by the University at no cost.
