Media of the Future
New ways to communicate, educate, and market
MU is where journalism was first taught and is reinvented every day. The university houses internationally-renowned faculty who specialize in web usability, digital news distribution, communication policy, documentary film production and media economics. Strong educational programs in digital technologies, graphic design and writing contribute to MU’s mastery of the media field.
The world’s brightest minds come together at MU’s Reynolds Journalism Institute, a one-of-a-kind media think tank. Other premier scholarly resources include the nationally-recognized Psychological Research on Information and Media Effects Lab, Immersive Visualization Lab and other research centers. Additionally, Mizzou’s close ties to industry offer new opportunities for discovery; the National Institute of Computer-Assisted Reporting and the Center for the Study of Conflict, Law and the Media are just two of the many campus units partnering with businesses, agencies and working journalists.
