Media and Journalism

The School of Media and Journalism, one of five schools in Kent State’s College of Communication and Information, helps students discover the power of storytelling – the news story, the feature story, the multimedia story, the client’s story and the short film. And in the process, we help students discover their own brand stories: who they are, what unique skills they offer and what they want to do with their professional lives.

Media and Journalism offers four majors that prepare students for careers in the rapidly changing media and communication industries. We emphasize practical training at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The university's core curriculum gives students a strong background in the liberal arts to complement Media and Journalism's professional training.


Students can complete some Media and Journalism Kent Core coursework at Kent State Stark, but Media and Journalism degrees will be completed at the Kent Campus.
