The Journalism Department invites all alumni and friends of Howard Ziff to campus Saturday, September 26, for a reunion and dedication of our student space. Please visit our registration site for details. 

The department will host a one-credit Multimedia Bootcamp September 2-5, 2015. Students will have the chance to learn digital reporting skills, work with fellow students and move into their room early. 

Students enrolled in the Sports Journalism Concentration can join a lottery to attend the first-ever Journalism Night at Fenway Park Wednesday, September 23. 

Fall online courses are now open for registration. Online classes count toward the degree requirements for journalism majors, but all are welcome to enroll.

"Journalism is a public good, and democracy cannot thrive without it. Our students learn journalism not only as a professional practice but also as a democratic habit of the heart and mind."
