UMass Amherst Journalism undergrad Wei Cai has been named the 1st winner of the PR Student Video Contest by Deirdre Breakenridge of PR Expanded. Students in professor Jennie Donohue's Intro to PR class were tasked with creating a short educational video sharing tips and insights based on communication practices they learned during the semester.

Welcome back to campus! We're excited to spring into the new semester. The first day of classes is Tuesday, January 21.

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.

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

Brian McDermott, Department Chair
