News & Events

Happy Thanksgiving! UMass is closed Thursday, Nov. 26, and Friday, Nov. 27. Travel safe, and we'll see you all back here on Monday.

If you are a prospective student, take a look at our recent pictures of "A Day in the Life of UMass Journalism," including images of our students working in the broadcast studio. Go ahead and contact us to schedule a visit.  We would love to meet you!

Jon Adolph, magazine writer and editor, will lead a discussion "From Pitch to Print: How a Magazine Feature Story Is Made" at 4:00 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 1, in the Ziff Gallery, ILC S414. 

"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."

Kathy Roberts Forde, Department Chair
