Small classes taught by highly qualified faculty

The Department of Journalism, Public Relations & New Media has been educating practitioners since 1927 and is known for award-winning publications, a research-focused faculty and a caring, Christian environment. Our professors will know your name.

Our graduates shape the world. Our name reflects what we do in today's ever-changing media landscape, and our program remains true to the fundamentals of strong, ethical practice.

Beginning writing/editing courses are taught in classes of about 15 students. We don't just teach theory. We share what we've done. And all our classes are taught by professors, not graduate students.

The rigor of the degree program has been proven time and again by the high quality of its graduating students. For example, a Baylor journalism student has been selected as a Fulbright Scholar for four of the past six years.

Diverse research interests include new media, ethics & public relations

Journalism faculty and students take various approaches to scholarship. Interests include new media, media effects, public relations, minorities and media, media and civil society, media and religion, ethics, media and politics, community journalism, documentary methods and journalism history. Professors publish, present research, teach and involve undergraduate and graduate students in research.

Current classroom technology, accredited department

Our students use the most current technology in "smart" classrooms that meet or exceed industry standards. We stay on the leading edge of journalism education and meet the profession's highest standards. In short, we are one of some 110 U.S. college journalism departments accredited by the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communication.

The Baylor Department of Journalism, PR and New Media is committed to a policy of inclusiveness, understanding and acceptance regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation, gender and age. Our goal is to foster the development of a new breed of journalists, PR professionals and mass media communicators whose work represents a much broader range of perspectives than in the past when the voices of underrepresented groups were ignored and misrepresented in the mainstream news media.
