Make Your Message Matter

Welcome to the School of Communications at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. We offer undergraduate and graduate study with two BA programs (Communication and Journalism), one MA program (Communication), an interdisciplinary PhD program, and a graduate certificate. We strive for excellence in all areas of teaching, research, and practice while embracing the contemporary challenges of complex and multicultural contexts involving communication and journalism.

Communication focuses on communication in intercultural and professional communities, information and communication technologies (ICTs) and policy, and the media arts. Journalism is professionally oriented and develops students’ critical thinking skills and ability to gather, analyze, and organize information, and to communicate it clearly and responsibly through print, broadcast, and online media.

Artificial intelligence can amplify racism, sexism, and other forms of discrimination. We deserve more accountable and equitable AI.

Journalism has a problem with source diversity. That's why I am SO proud of this resource. All the experts here are @NPR-vetted. You can search by location or field.
Use it to tell fuller stories. And end each interview with: "Who else should I talk to?"
