COJO students make community connections in an innovative partnership between COJO 111 and Cristo Rey Jesuit High School. Check it out by watching this video story produced by COJO Clinical Professor Greg Vandegrift and IRT Videographer Brad Jacobsen.
UST's Communication & Journalism Department was established July 1, 2007. The existing Department of Communication Studies and Department of Journalism & Mass Communication combined to create the new department because the faculty recognized that communication forms are intertwining so closely today that it's difficult to separate them.
We seized the opportunity to combine and create an innovative program that has two strong traditions as its foundation. We pulled together courses from our previous programs to create new combinations, and we designed new courses that cut across communication boundaries. The resulting Communication & Journalism major and minor are distinctive among institutions of higher education.
We have 18 full-time faculty members, who bring Ph.D.s from some of the top doctoral programs in communication and journalism, and about 10 part-time faculty, who bring strong professional credentials. We value excellence in teaching, and most of our classes encourage students to participate as partners in engaged, active learning.
