The UMass Amherst Reopening Plan has been published, with classes set to begin on August 24. Check out the Fall '20 Journalism Class Synchronicity Chart for information on how each class will work during the Fall semester.

Journalism majors now have the option to earn a concentration in Public Relations! The six required courses– plus an internship– are designed to develop the skills necessary for professional success. 

The department welcomes Kelsey Whipple as a new Assistant Professor. She is a scholar, journalist and Texas native. In addition to core classes like Introduction to Journalism, Whipple will teach audio journalism and cultural journalism classes.

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

Brian McDermott, Department Chair
