"Give light and the people will find their own way.” This motto, coined by the Scripps Howard Foundation, has been the guiding inspiration of Hampton University’s Scripps Howard School of Journalism and Communications since its inception in 2002. Uniquely designed as a modern, symbolic lighthouse, the Scripps Howard School was built with a vision to produce ethical and competitive leaders equipped to practice excellence and innovation in multimedia technology while adhering to the core principles of journalism and communications.

Scripps Howard students have full-access to the amenities at the school, as well as the highly skilled and experienced professors. With professional backgrounds varying from The New York Times, The Washington Post, Atlantic Records, MTV Networks, Cox Communications, CBS and PBS, each professor teaches an intimate class of no more than 15-25 students, allowing each student personalized attention and the opportunity to establish valuable relationships.

Students at the Scripps Howard School are immersed in journalism and communications education and experience in and out of the classroom. Skilled in software programs such as Final Cut Pro, Adobe InDesign and digital radio operation, students gain an in-depth knowledge of professional industry programs.
