On Wednesday, December 4, nearly 30 Amherst Regional Public School students took an all-day Journalism field trip to UMass Amherst with their teachers Sara Barber-Just and Matthew Despres. They spent the day visiting with faculty, staff and students to learn about their work in Journalism. The day included informative discussions on journalism and tours of the Integrative Learning Center, broadcast studio, campus center and library. Check out more photos on Facebook.

The end of the semester is quickly approaching! The last day of classes is Wednesday, December 11, with final exams beginning on Friday, December 13. Take a study break with some coffee, apple cider and donuts starting at 9:30 a.m. in the Journalism Hub on Tuesday and Wednesday, December 10 and 11. This is the final stretch before the semester break starts.

"We draw on proud journalistic traditions so our students can tell the stories of our community bravely, ethically and creatively."

Brian McDermott, Department Chair
