Pulitzer prize-winners.

Emmy award-winners.

And many other awards.

Our Merrill College faculty have all served (or continue to serve) as working journalists. From Seattle to Washington, D.C. and all around the world, they have covered news of import and impact. Our adjunct faculty are current working professionals or have continued to give back in the classroom after moving on from the newsroom.

Our retired and emeritus faculty have given many years of service to journalism and the University of Maryland and we honor them here. Finally, like our faculty, Merrill College’s staff focuses on one thing – our students and their success in the classroom and beyond.

To be a journalist today may be one of the most exciting careers to have.

It is fluid, dynamic, changing quickly with greater and greater demands.

Our student are trained to be fearless journalists – ready for the real world. Ready to make a difference. They become #MerrillMade.
