JANDOLI SCHOOL OF COMMUNICATION

The Jandoli School of Communication teaches students how to gather, analyze and communicate information, skills valued by virtually every occupation.

It's no surprise, then, that our graduates work in a variety of professions: journalism, public relations, advertising, Internet enterprises, even law. Our professors have more than 230 years' experience in these areas and others.

We teach these skills within the context of a broad liberal arts background, and, in keeping with our Franciscan tradition, we pride ourselves in weaving ethics into each of our courses.

Undergraduate & Graduate Majors

The hallmark of our undergraduate majors is experiential learning:
  • Journalism majors work in the SBU-TV broadcast studio, the SBU-TV Sports broadcast facility or the Journalist's Workshop covering local news and sports stories.
  • Strategic Communication majors work in an agency setting developing campaigns for clients.
  • Sports Media majors follow a course of study designed to prepare them for careers in a variety of sports-related fields.
  • Broadcast Journalism majors are prepared for communication careers in a variety of video and audio media fields.
We offer two popular, fully online graduate programs:
  • Integrated Marketing Communications, which reviews the functional marketing communications areas — advertising, PR, sales promotion, business communications and writing, direct response — in an integrated program.
  • Strategic Leadership, an engaging curriculum that combines communication and business concepts for a multidisciplinary approach to develop the leadership mindset.
Both graduate programs are offered in an online-only format. Learn about all of our online programs at St. Bonaventure University Online.

You'll put your education to work

Majors must complete 400 hours of internships, both with on-campus student media and off-campus, under the supervision of industry professionals.

Our skills courses are taught in computer labs, a broadcast journalism studio, and in a TV production facility.

Students run a highly ranked campus radio station, publish weekly and daily print and online newspapers, broadcast a weekly news program, cover SBU athletics on campus, and publish the oldest consecutively published student literary magazine in the country.
 

A record of accomplishment

Five of our graduates have won journalism's highest honor, the Pulitzer Prize. In the annual Jim Murray Memorial Foundation Scholarship essay contest, which invites participation from only the strongest journalism programs in the nation, St. Bonaventure has had more winners than any other school.

St. Bonaventure has had winners of the Tim Russert Medal of Merit, presented by the Buffalo Broadcasters Association, the last four years of the six it has been awarded.

A degree from the Jandoli School of Communication means not only that you have learned from the best, but that you're prepared to claim your spot among them.
