School of Global Journalism & Communication

WEAA is a division of the School of Global Journalism & Communication at Morgan State University

WEAA offers a unique opportunity for students to gain the experience of industry experts in the field of journalism by becoming assignment reporters. Students will be assigned stories that will offer them the experience of professional journalist by following leads, writing scripts, interviewing subjects, and editing vignettes.

Today, the mission of Morgan State University's School of Global Journalism and Communication is to give a voice to a broader group of people - people who struggle to contribute to the public discourse that shapes this nation and the world. We serve this cause with innovative teaching, cutting edge research, and exemplary service to Maryland, our nation, and the world.

Our goal is to add to the diversity of thoughts, opinions and beliefs by offering students from a wide range of backgrounds the liberal arts education and skills training they need to effectively communicate ideas - to plead their own causes, or to accurately tell the stories of others.

In our global school, students travel the world in their classes and assignments, without leaving the campus. They also see the world through their interactions with our partner programs at universities in distant lands - and they are offered opportunities to travel abroad in our Worldwide Learning Lab program.

The great advances in technology have turned the world into a global village. The goal of our school is to make our graduates effective communicators in every way - and every corner of this village.
