Mission Statement

 The School of Journalism and Strategic Media at the University of Arkansas prepares students to be innovative and ethical media professionals and scholars in the digital world. The faculty is engaged in scholarly and professional pursuits, bringing fresh approaches to challenges faced by media.

Our students gain conceptual knowledge and practical skills from a curriculum that emphasizes critical thinking and mastery of state-of-the-art technology. Students learn the importance of diversity, which requires the inclusion of voices from all economic backgrounds, ages, races, genders and religions in pursuit of accurate coverage of our pluralistic society.
