A Message From The Dean

Denise Dowling In OfficeWelcome to The University of Montana School of Journalism!

You could not pick a more lively, interesting and engaging place to study journalism. Montana Journalism students are among the very best in the country and have the awards to prove it. The faculty has a broad and diverse background in the profession. Our support system is second to none.

Don Anderson Hall boasts state-of-the-art technology on the stunning University of Montana campus in Missoula. Our curriculum is very flexible, allowing you to specialize in a particular area of journalism, or take a wide variety of classes in print, photo, television, radio and online in subjects like investigations, documentary and features.

Montana Journalism students compete for, and very often win, the top prizes given to college journalists. That’s because the work they do while in school is meaningful. Your professors will require you to DO JOURNALISM, leaving you with a professional portfolio at the end of your time here. 

Our graduates land jobs with organizations like The Washington Post, CNN, The Innocence Project, National Public Radio. They work in newsrooms around Montana, the U.S. and the world. A journalism degree also serves as a strong background for other professions including law, public relations, business and education.

For graduate students, our master's degree in Environmental Science and Natural Resource Reporting puts students in touch with leading scientific scholars across campus, around the West and across the globe. Our graduate students are learning how to report on discovery in the natural world and helping scientists share their stories with the world.
