THE DEPARTMENT OF
JOURNALISM AND MEDIA STUDIES
At the USF St. Petersburg Department of Journalism and Media Studies, we’re dedicated to educating journalists and professional communicators who can report and interpret news and information with skill, responsibility and social consciousness. We stress innovative, community-oriented coverage of public life, seeking out news and issues that touch the lives of ordinary citizens.
