Welcome to the J-School

The William Allen White School of Journalism and Mass Communications has long been a national leader among American journalism schools. Named for a renowned and popular Pulitzer Prize winning editor, we educate journalists and mass communicators to think critically, communicate precisely and use their skills to shape the world around them. With our intimate environment of 850 undergraduate students, we provide a small-school experience with all of the benefits of a large university. And our innovative, skills-based teaching and personalized advising acknowledge students as individuals while encouraging them to take risks and grow. Our most lasting legacy is our 14,000 graduates, who live in every state and 49 countries around the world. They are best evidence that the KU School of Journalism is a great destination for serious students who are smart, ambitious and creative.
