Stanford University’s Department of Communication was established in 1950, but the school has been offering a strong Journalism curriculum since 1893. Now, with the Department of Communication, you can immerse yourself in the study of various interlinking media disciplines. As an undergraduate you will study the basics of media technology, how media influences people and culture, and different mediums of communication. Should you choose to enroll in Stanford’s M.A. in Journalism, you will receive even more in-depth training in how to properly analyze data and turn it into a story, how to conduct profitable interviews, and how to write and report gripping stories using a range of multimedia tools. The Stanford Communication Department faculty is comprised of journalists and reporters who have worked for big-name papers including The Washington Post, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal. Stanford University also offers you a unique opportunity because of its location: the heart of Silicon Valley. The school is only a few miles away from some of today’s most powerful media and news networks, providing you with ample opportunity to secure internships and employment in the fields that you are studying.
