Reimagine Possible. Reimagine Journalism. Reimagine Media Production. Reimagine Change. Reimagine Yourself.

"To be starting at this moment when journalism itself is changing so much. To be part of remaking it into something new. To be reporting on these difficult times. To be battling untruth with truth." -- Ira Glass, Journalist for NPR's This American Life, Commencement Speech at the Columbia Journalism School Graduation, May 17, 2018

?Ira's words not only reflect the change we seek in Journalism, but also the change we seek in every aspect of Media Production - from writing technical communication to public relations, graphic design, video production, broadcasting, social media and leadership in the industry. Be part of the change you seek and join us!



In this discussion below, Professors Steve Krizman and Christopher Jennings discuss the role of journalism, mass media, media production and the audience during these tense times. In addition, they answer the essential question of why one should consider taking courses with JMP at MSU Denver? 


Portrait of JTC student Andrea Herrera
“I love that I was able to dig into most aspects of journalism. It wasn’t, ‘You’re doing print and that’s all you’re doing,’ or ‘You’re only doing broadcasting.’ It was, ‘You can do podcasting, you can do layout and design for a magazine, you can do all that and see what you’re really drawn to.’”
