The University of Maryland is uniquely located near Washington, D.C., and Baltimore. Such a perfect location gives Philip Merrill College of Journalism students the special opportunity to examine, understand and report on the most important government activities and debates of our day. We help them — and will help you — become fearless journalists.

Our undergraduate and graduate journalism programs offer students the practical courses, investigative focus and proximity to experts and decision-makers to make this possible. Student work has appeared on the front pages of The Washington Post and The Baltimore Sun. Our student investigation into human sex trafficking in Maryland was judged by the Society of Professional Journalists in September 2016 as the best in the nation.
