The Gaylord Difference

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.
