About the School

SIU School of Journalism is one of 111 accredited journalism programs in the United States and one of only five in Illinois.   

Through real-world experience and intensive mentoring, our students acquire the skills they need to compete for choice jobs, internships and graduate school programs. 

All of our programs stress involvement - on campus, in the community, in the region and beyond.  

Our students covered the 2008 Election Night celebration in Grant Park, Chicago, the disastrous 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill, and the devastating tornado that struck Harrisburg, Ill. in 2012.

Daily Egyptian reporters also regularly cover Carbondale City Council meetings, Paul Simon Public Policy Institute speakers and events, Saluki sports and local entertainment.

The School of Journalism is dedicated to preparing today's students for tomorrow's top media careers.
