Media Innovation LabThe Reed College of Media has many things to offer our students — from small, specialized classes  to the latest in technology.

The College of Media is located in Martin Hall - the oldest at WVU, located in the heart of Woodburn Circle.

We are also located in the Media Innovation Center

The 10,000 square foot facility, located in the Evansdale Crossing Building, provides both a technology sandbox for media students and faculty and a gathering place to foster cross-disciplinary collaboration and creative problem solving for journalism and the media industry.

Our students use technology like 360 video and augmented and virtual reality tools to tell stories in new ways to an increasingly sophisticated audience.

We also offer small class sizes – with most capped at 20 students.

This allows students to collaborate closely with each other and their professors. Students have the resources of a large university, but the comfort of a smaller academic unit within that university.
