Earlier this week, USA Today published results from a study that analyzed the best journalism schools in the country. We are so proud to have landed the number two spot on this coveted list. The study, conducted with College Factual, analyzed universities based on factors like the quality of the school, starting & mid-career salaries of graduates, and other factors.
Here at COM, we think there are even more reasons why we have such a successful journalism program. But don’t just take our word for it. Listen to the reasons straight from some of our journalism students:
I came to BU with an undergraduate degree in English Education. My experience with a camera went about as far as taking video and pictures on my iPhone and then ‘editing’ them on Instagram. In less than two semesters, BU taught me how to shoot, edit, and produce quality video packages that were of professional newsroom quality. Their instruction and guidance is unparalleled to any other institution.

“How encouraging and selfless the professors can be– especially Professor Mehren. Gives me hope.”
“I like that the professors are interested in getting us real-world experience.” – Justine Hofherr
To be honest, I expected to learn a lot and apply a lot of what I learned to the real world which I know I will…but I wasn’t expecting the camaraderie between my classmates.”- Andre Katchaturian
“From day one we are out reporting like real journalists in one of the world’s best cities with endless incredible stories!”- Megan Turchi
