It is only through the generosity of our alumni and friends that we are able to continue the stellar reputation of the School of Journalism at MTSU. The School of Journalism is funded only by tuition and the State of Tennessee. The other portion comes from grants and gifts by foundations and individuals like you.

Your generous support will help bolster our converged classrooms and labs, inject a global worldview across our academic programs, and propel our advertising, journalism, public relations and visual communication to national and international prominence.

Here are some of the ways you can support our mission:
