Our Mission

We seek to foster a dynamic, high quality learning environment that builds on classroom learning and faculty engagement in ways that help students achieve personal goals, along with grants, scholarships, internships and jobs.

The Chico State Department of Journalism & PR offers a structured, rigorous program that provides students with faculty interaction, engagement, feedback and learning. We want our students to be prepared to learn, grow, make mistakes and thrive, both in the classroom and through professional journalism experiences.

We are committed to the achievement and success of our students; to fostering diversity and personal growth; and to professional standards and independence.
