Welcome to the Philip Merrill College of Journalism Public Accountability Page.

The information we present here is designed to help you make the best possible decision about coming to Maryland and choosing Journalism as your major at the undergraduate or graduate (master’s degree) level.

We want you to understand what our enrollment looks like, how long it should take you to graduate, the diversity of the students who study here at the Merrill College, how many full and part-time time students we have, and where our students come from.

We are proud of our Merrill journalists and their achievements. We work hard to make sure our students are prepared for success when they leave College Park. As one employer told us, “we are always impressed with how well (Merrill students) have been trained. ”
