Election Night at the Columbia Missourian
Student reporters, editors and photographers work to a tight deadline in the Missourian newsroom covering the midterm elections on the evening of Nov. 6, 2018.

The Columbia Missourian is a digital-first community newsroom that covers news and sports and is part of the School’s Missouri News Network. The paper is supervised by professional editors and staffed by Missouri School of Journalism students who do the reporting, copy editing, design, photography and multimedia.

This hands-on teaching of learning-by-doing is called “The Missouri Method.” The published work is optimized for social media, mobile and web, with the print editions delivered five-days-a-week.

Many of our alumni now write for leading newspapers, magazines and websites. Others are working as photographers, designers, graphic artists, copy editors, website developers, etc.
