The University of Maryland is the home of the Terps – inspiring, involved, and intrepid Terps from across the state and around the globe. We’re one of the nation’s top-ranked public research institutions. Journalism is just one of a whopping 90 undergraduate majors, with an unbeatable location just outside Washington, D.C.

In the classroom, you will learn from Nobel and Pulitzer prize-winners and other renowned faculty members. Outside of it, you’ll get prime opportunities for hands-on, real-world experiences.  Our Fearless Merrill Journalists get internships at a wide range of news outlets from WTOP radio to CNN, The Washington Post,  Baltimore Sun and many more media outlets. Get involved in real journalism as a freshman volunteering with CNS Broadcast at UMTV, at the Diamondback student newspaper or other publications,  WMUC radio or many of our student-produced sports websites and programs.
