Media Scholars

The Media Scholars program is intended to promote student engagement in professional development, and to encourage the broadening and deepening of knowledge and practice through courses across the Utah State University curriculum.

Any student in the Utah State University Department of Journalism and Communication or its affiliated programs can become a Media Scholar by earning 100 points through a variety of curricular and extracurricular accomplishments. The point structure has been established by the department's Media Scholars committee.

To enroll, students should send an email to program facilitator Matthew LaPlante. Once added to the program page, students can peruse the list of assignments for encouraged classes and activities, looking for opportunities to advance their learning and earn additional points toward their Media Scholars goal.
