The S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University is one of the nation's premiere schools of mass communication.
Newhouse embraces virtually every known form of information dissemination from print journalism to broadcast journalism to online communication and from advertising and public relations to photography and film. The computer and the Internet figure prominently in the curricula throughout the major areas of study and through a variety of elective courses in computer-based, interactive multimedia. The facility is predominantly digital for capturing and editing sound, still pictures, and moving images. Plans for a third building call for an even more sophisticated technological environment.
Nevertheless the written word and the good idea occupy a preeminent position in all disciplines.
The more than 60 faculty members come primarily from the profession, men and women for whom teaching is the top priority. Among them are international experts in such fields as First Amendment law, the effects of television on children, the impact of television on popular culture, and the effectiveness of advertising.
Newhouse students are among the best in the nation, having secured a place in the class through a highly competitive admissions process. A diverse group of highly motivated individuals, they are passionate about the media and are involved in a wide variety of campus media and internship opportunities.
Upon graduation they become part of a large, loyal, and highly accomplished group of alumni, men and women who are literally shaping the future of public communication across the globe.
