Welcome to the Department Of Journalism and Media Studies
If you're looking for a vibrant, exciting place to learn, collaborate, and create your own path to a career in journalism or media, you've come to the right place.
At the USF St. Petersburg Department of Journalism and Media Studies, we’re dedicated to educating journalists who can report and interpret the news with skill, responsibility and social consciousness. We stress innovative, community-oriented coverage of public life, seeking out news and issues that relate to and touch the lives of ordinary citizens.
Our graduate and undergraduate programs allow for individually tailored approaches to journalism studies to accommodate the backgrounds and interests of our students. Professors with media experience teach in small, seminar-style classes.
Adjunct professors and visiting lecturers come from the ranks of the Tampa Bay journalism community, including the Poynter Institute and the St. Petersburg Times.
We, as a faculty, take pride in our personalized approach to each and every student's education in journalism and media studies. Faculty are readily accessible to answer your questions, mentor you through course work, projects, internships, and independent research. You will work collaboratively with your fellow students and faculty in a community of professional journalists and media scholars.
The department is one of USFSP’s four “Programs of Distinction,” and was chosen for this honor on the basis of past performance and the promise for greater success. We are proud to be nationally accredited by ACEJMC, the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communication, which assures the highest standards of classroom instruction.
