Welcome Journalism Student!


If you are a new or incoming student visiting for Transitions or Fall Advising & Orientation, please email the Journalism Department's Program Coordinator Lydia Love to begin.

Lydia will be available to advise over email regarding transfer courses, what to take in the Fall, and assist with any override codes needed. Zoom appointments will be available upon request.

Advising hours are from 11am - 1pm on July 24, 27, 28, and 29 for Transitions and August 3, 4, 5, and 6 for Fall Advising & Orientation.


For information about the open registration window August 7 - 9, see here. 



Email is currently the best way to communicate with the department and our professors unless you've been instructed otherwise.

See Canvas for updates and information if you're already a Journalism student.

Contact us if you need to sign up as a pre-major or minor.
