Big Campus, Intimate Community
You get all the benefits of a big university - Big 12 sports, groundbreaking research,
state-of-the-art facilities - and the personal touch of our small college. We have
our own in-house advising team and career coach, small class sizes and a 20:1 student
to faculty ratio. So you’ll get lots of face time.
Our College’s community is like no other. While we’re home to a diverse group of
faculty, students and alumni, we share a similar mindset: once a Mountaineer, always
a Mountaineer. And that speaks volumes considering our people both come from and
go on to impressive places. We have Pulitzer Prize and Emmy Award winners, Oscar
nominees, Google partners, best-selling authors and higher-ups at the world’s biggest
advertising agencies and news outlets.
Tech and Immersion
You’ll work with common tech like digital SLR cameras and experiment with new, innovative
tools like 360-degree video and augmented and virtual reality. Not only will you
be trained on how to use these gadgets, but you’ll do real work with them. WVU
College of Media faculty are pros on some of the latest journalism and communications
tools and we invite innovators to campus to show us what we don't know.
