We appreciate your interest in the Hank Greenspun School of Journalism and Media Studies. We’re an integrated media program with an entrepreneurial mindset.
For example, this past year we’ve created the Rebel Media Group, an integrated media operation that combines the resources of KUNV Radio, UNLV-TV, and our new Strategic Social Media Agency. The school’s professional faculty and staff work with student interns and student volunteers to provide integrated media solutions for for-profit, nonprofit, and government clients. Our team consists of 18-to 25-year-olds, the very demographic that leads out in navigating and innovating in the digital space. Students gain hands-on experience while working under the direction of our professional staff and academic faculty.
Students in our integrated marketing communications program manage social media and create content for clients from across campus and the community. Like professionals in the digital media world, our students work across platforms, incorporating audio, visual, and social media. We also updated our curriculum to include courses in digital and social media, mobile storytelling, podcasting, storytelling and design, and social media management.
What’s our ultimate goal? We want our program and courses to be relevant, providing our students with the education and training they need to succeed in today’s media marketplace.
Our faculty and staff consist of nationally known media scholars and professionals, including Greg Borchard, Ph.D., who was recently named as editor of Journalism History. Mentored by our professional faculty, our students won three Emmys for visual news and sports reporting and published articles in national publications, including the Washington Post, the New York Daily News, and Men’s Health.
By the way, we’re only getting started. Come join us.
