Penn State’s Journalism School Tabbed No. 2 In The Country

Penn State’s journalism school recently notched impressive recognition from College Magazine, which ranked the program No. 2 in the country.

Penn State beat out some journalism schools commonly thought to be better than it, like Syracuse’s Newhouse School (No. 7) and Northwestern’s Medill School (No. 5). The only school to top Penn State was Missouri.

Penn State became the first school ever to win the Hearst Journalism Awards (often referred to as the Pulitzers of student journalism) for three consecutive years in 2014. And at the individual competition, the alumnae trio of Anna Orso, Christina Gallagher, and Onward Stater Jess Tully took home first, second, and third place for a Penn State sweep of the writing championship.

And it’s not just writing competitions that the College of Communication students excel at. The Centre County Report recently took home the Mid-Atlantic Emmy for Best College/University Newscast. CCR is produced entirely by students in the College of Communication’s state-of-the-art newsroom and multimedia production facility. Newscasts are broadcast locally and posted on CommMedia’s website. The group won for its episode on November 2, 2012.

Between us, the Collegian, and the litany of other student media organizations on campus, I doubt you’ll find a college with more journalistic opportunities than Penn State. I’ve given some of our professors a hard time for being a little too newspaper-minded, but the vast majority of journalism professors I’ve had here were extremely dedicated to helping students improve. Congrats to the J-school for the ranking.
