This is Dean Plummer, from the Scripps Howard School of Journalism & Communications at Hampton University.

We are so excited you’ve been admitted to HU and have expressed an interest in our School.

E.W. Scripps Company owns 61 media stations in 41 markets and is the nation’s fourth-largest independent TV station owner. Our school is one of only two colleges carrying the prestigious media brand’s name across our state-of-the-art facility. Media giants in both journalism and strategic communication from all around the world reach out to us for internship opportunities and employment openings. Careers are made here. In fact, an entering freshman student’s success is sealed from the first day of classes. Young communicators go from our classrooms to dream jobs in the industry.

Watch below to learn more about our program.

Our alumni, including Rashida Jones (newly announced president of MSNBC), have gone on to fruitful careers as executive producers, creatives and strategists, news and sports program producers, as well as editors, journalists and more in every broadcast field you can think of.

Every day I walk into school, I’m WOWED – not only by the cutting edge technology in our Augmented and Virtual Reality Lab and elsewhere, but also by the focus and dedication of our faculty and students alike.

While I could go on about SHSJC, the truth is, the strength of our school is best communicated by those who have hired our students. The Walt Disney Company, ABC, ESPN, CNN, Bloomberg, The New York Times, Google, Facebook, Amazon, SKDKnickerbocker, Endeavor and so many others are a testament to how our school and alumni are viewed by the best in the industry.

Look through our website -- we’d love you to join us.

We’re available for one-on-one conversations to answer questions, discuss your goals, discover what you’re looking for and strategize how we can help you get there.

You can reach us by calling 757-727-5405 to schedule a time to connect.

We can't wait to hear from you,
