About Us

The School of Media at Western Kentucky University embraces the concept that broad-based liberal arts curriculum is essential for a well-rounded understanding of society. It upholds the ideal that the American press system should be free, independent and responsible. Through its course work and extracurricular activities, the school and its faculty encourage students to be critical thinkers and competent communicators, to be aware of ethical values and historical perspectives, and to gain insight into the functions and responsibilities of contemporary communications institutions. A high priority is the encouragement of students to be able to adapt, both intellectually and creatively, to the realities and challenges of an increasingly diverse and complex information society. The School of Media offers degrees in broadcasting, film, journalism and photojournalism.
