Knight School of Communication
Grounded in theory. Perfected in practice.
The Knight School of Communication develops students into creative communicators that become engaged citizens, advocates and leaders in the communities they serve. In our academic programs and our community initiatives, we are discovering how universities can shape their local media ecosystems.
Our programs include practical training in traditional and emerging media forms, as well as critical training in communication studies. With a strong foundational knowledge, our graduates are sophisticated information analysts, with the ability to evaluate, reflect and act with a range of media forms in a variety of environments.

Alumni thrive in such areas as journalism, media industries, advertising, public and community relations, law, human resources, sports enterprise, corporate communication, government and education.
"This program is not just within these four walls. This program is really integrated in our community, in Charlotte, and it's about giving back as much as it is about helping yourself." -Lelia King '14
