Resources

A number of special resources enrich students’ experiences studying journalism at Richmond.

Journalism Reading List
Some books change the way we see the world. Each year, professors in the Department of Journalism compile a list of books that could change the way students see the profession.

The Collegian Student Newspaper
Established in 1914, the University of Richmond’s student newspaper, The Collegian, is produced weekly. It averages 24 pages per issue and has a staff of about 24 editors, associate editors and reporters. All journalism majors are encouraged to write for the paper, and internship credit is available to those who do.

21st Century Student Voice
21st Century Student Voice is a journal of works produced by journalism majors at the University of Richmond. The magazine is published once a semester and includes work in the following categories: news writing, environment, public affairs, features, arts, business and the Virginia Assembly.

Class Projects
Professors in the Department of Journalism periodically create Websites that showcase student work completed in a specific seminar course. 

News Classroom
Richmond’s Department of Journalism has a state-of-the-art 16-work-station Macintosh lab that gives journalism students crucial experience working with the latest editing and graphics technology. Students can record and edit video with Final Cut Pro editing software and layout publications using the full suite of Adobe design applications, giving them hands-on experience with the same technology they will one day encounter in the newsroom.

Discipline-Specific Library Research Guide
Subject librarians at the University of Richmond Libraries maintain discipline-specific research guides for every academic course of study offered through the School of Arts & Sciences. Students in the Department of Journalism can contact the subject librarian directly, view top recommended resources and conduct discipline-specific searches of databases and Web sites. In addition, subject librarians frequently highlight new titles related to the academic field.
