Want to know how you can support the work of faculty and students at the Manship School of Mass Communication?

With the help of generous support from alumni and friends, the Manship School and its affiliated centers can create, expand or maintain the programs, facilities, research and faculty that make it a national leader. Consider donating today!


The school’s programs embrace journalism, public relations, advertising and political communication. Our teaching, research, and public service aim to promote economic and political democracy by improving the quality of information that reaches the public.


Our undergraduates are consistently singled out for their leadership abilities on and off campus and go on to use those skills in the media industries as well as law, business, and public service.


Our doctoral program is the only one in the country focused exclusively on mass communication and public affairs. Campaign & Elections magazine describes this program as “unique in its ability to turn out professionals and scholars at the highest level.”


The Reilly Center for Media & Public Affairs harnesses the intellectual muscle of the school to convene symposia, publish books, and recruit senior fellows who seek ways to elevate political discourse. Through the Public Policy Research Lab, the school produces public opinion analysis that includes annual surveys on progress in Louisiana.
