The Queens James L. Knight School of Communication at Queens University of Charlotte provides students with an integrative learning environment, where the classroom and the real world meet. We offer undergraduate majors in Communication and Journalism & Digital Media, as well as a master's degree in Communication. Our undergraduate programs combine a liberal arts experience with critical training in communication studies and practical training in traditional and emerging media forms. Accomplished and dynamic faculty help students to become engaged citizens, advocates and leaders in the communities they serve. All of our programs support and challenge students to understand and acquire the best practices in the field of communication, equipping them for professional and lifelong success.
With generous support from the Knight Foundation, the School has emerged as a regional leader in the study of digital and media literacy. Combining academic experiences with community initiatives, faculty and students discover how universities and communities can join forces to sustain creative and meaningful civic partnerships, and the City of Charlotte serves as a vibrant resource for our students and faculty. Collaborating with an array of partners-local government and industry, media organizations, public schools and libraries, regional arts and cultural institutions, and civically engaged community service providers-we work to improve city-wide digital and media literacy. Our School of Communication is the only one in the nation to bear the Knight name, and we are honored by that privilege. I hope that you will visit the Knight School to learn more about our curriculum and our work.
