Studying Journalism at Ohio University
A basic philosophy of the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism program is that students need media experience while working toward their degrees. Experience is available through many student publications and broadcasts.
The E.W. Scripps School of Journalism is committed to providing an education that emphasizes professional excellence, critical thinking, and social responsibility.
To maintain and enhance our democratic society and the free exchange of ideas, journalism must be built on the principles of truth, accuracy, and independence. Our faculty search for these principles, our students strive for them, and our alumni live them.
Through a blend of professional education, practical experience, and intellectual exploration, we teach journalism in a way that it can be applied to many professions and to a rewarding life in a multicultural and fast changing world. Whether it's telling a story, building a brand, or engaging in research, we prepare students for their chosen professions now and as those professions change in the future.
