Journalism majors are strongly encouraged to get involved with the campus media. Students are welcome regardless of his or her experience. Since the campus media are student-run organizations, you cannot get academic or internship credit for your work, but you do get invaluable experience that can prepare you for future internships and jobs.

The Rebirth Project UMass Amherst

UMass Journalism Department

It is the duty of the Rebirth Project to cultivate a digital magazine included with multimedia content that documents the activity, thoughts and experiences of students in attendance at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, with particular focus on students of color as their interests connect to the broader local, national, and global happenings of the present. Through well executed journalistic, artistic, and technical practices we withstand the legacy that has come before us and work to inspire the future.

"We are a UMass based magazine whose goal is to give students of color a platform to put their personal work out, and to provide a safe space for active and engaged discussion within the PoC community on campus. We work to give a platform to share creative writing, photography, art, poetry, and more from students of color. We also work to highlight local artists, business, and social media influencers. Our goal is to uplift people of color and provide a space for access and information on these people and to hear different voices."
