Regarded as one of the nation’s leading schools of communication, the Newhouse School is engaged in industry partnerships and ongoing academic development that prepare students and faculty to embrace a rapidly changing media landscape.
Newhouse offers residential bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees; an online master’s degree; and an executive education master’s degree offered in a distance-learning format. Curriculum embraces virtually every known form of information dissemination–from print and broadcast journalism, to social media and online communication, to advertising and public relations, to photography and film.
Students test their skills and gain real-time experience through a number of school-based organizations: The NewsHouse, a student-run digital outlet; NCC News, a broadcast news outlet; Hill Communications, a student-run public relations firm; and TNH, a student-run advertising agency. Students also have the opportunity to spend a semester in New York City or Los Angeles through the school’s two satellite campus programs.
The school’s world-class facilities include a high-tech entertainment production studio; an innovation lab where content development and production meet the latest media technology and programming trends; and a digital newsroom equipped with a contemporary news set, a green screen, state-of-the-art lighting systems and cameras.
The school enrolls approximately 1,900 undergraduates, 210 residential master’s degree students, 200 online master's degree students and 13 doctoral candidates. There are more than 80 full-time instructional faculty and 50 adjunct instructors.
Faculty members come primarily from the profession and are skilled at teaching and research. Students are among the best in the country, having secured a place in the class through a highly competitive admissions process. Upon graduating, they become part of a large, loyal and highly accomplished group of alumni–known as “the Newhouse Network”–who can be found in every corner of the communications industry.
