We are a college of creative minds.

Our students graduate from Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication to become journalists, creative directors, writers and videographers, to name just a few of the potential career paths.

But really, we’d say what Gaylord College students do is much bigger than a job title. Our students are more than just students.

At Gaylord College, they become storytellers, thinkers, creators and innovators, using their degrees from a college that provides endless professional opportunities in dynamic industries around the world.

Our alumni work with NFL stars and Grammy-award winning pop singers.

They produce major movies like “12 Years a Slave.”

Our former students include Pulitzer Prize winners and authors on the New York Times’ best-seller list.

Gaylord graduates anchor and produce the news in major media markets and global news organizations.

They are also practicing attorneys, entrepreneurs and leaders in global corporations, the nonprofit sector and public office.

Our graduates’ stories take shape here at Gaylord College where we connect creative minds to meaningful futures.
