About Our School

Students at the School of Journalism and New Media are being prepared for thriving professional careers in media, journalism and integrated marketing communications through superior education and hands-on, real-world experience at the University of Mississippi.

The School’s degree programs – the Bachelor of Arts in Journalism, the Master of Arts in Journalism, the Bachelor of Science in Integrated Marketing Communications and the Master of Science in Integrated Marketing Communications – give students the opportunity to understand the changing roles of media, journalism and integrated marketing communications from different perspectives while developing the multimedia and intellectual skills necessary to succeed in the professions.

Students also have the opportunity to immediately apply the skills learned in the classroom through internships at the school-run website, HottyToddy.com, or by gaining paid experience at the S. Gale Denley Student Media Center, where students can be published in The Daily Mississippian or The Ole Miss yearbook, gain on-air experience by reporting for NewsWatch or Rebel Radio, or get a glimpse of the business side of journalism by working for the student-run advertising division.
