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!
The Social Documentary class to South Korea and Japan has been canceled. Coronavirus cases have increased in Korea and the U.S. State Department issued a cautionary travel advisory. “We cannot know whether this will clear up in time for the summer trip, so we made the hard decision to cancel,” said Steve Krizman, assistant professor of journalism and public relations.
There was a lot of student interest in the trip, so the course likely will be offered next summer. “We’re thinking about doing it over Maymester, which better coincides with the academic schedule at Korea universities,” Krizman said. “I have a list of interested students I will contact in the fall. If you want to be added to the list, let me know.”

“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.’”
