Founded in 1908 as a community newspaper, the Columbia Missourian regularly beats out the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Kansas City Star and Columbia Tribune for state journalism awards.
The Columbia Missourian is a digital-first community newsroom that covers news and sports. 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.
