Howard University students are pursuing undergraduate, graduate and professional degrees in more than 120 areas of study. Founded in 1867, Howard produces more African-American Ph.D.s than any other university in the world. Since 1998, University students have been honored with two Rhodes Scholarships, two Truman Scholarships, 21 Fulbright Scholarships and 11 Pickering Fellowships.

The university's John H. Johnson School of Communications boasts more than 1400 students, with nearly half studying Journalism. In 2010 the department was re-accredited by the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications, which measured the faculty, students, curriculum and facilities against a rigorous national standard.

For journalism students at the "School of C," the world is their beat. From the White House to the Pentagon, from Northern Virginia to southern Maryland and the diverse communities that make up the District of Columbia, students cover news events and compelling stories that have local, national and international impact.

Twice in the last three years, the National Association of Black Journalists' Student of the Year was from Howard. Journalism graduates work in local and network newsrooms around the country including ABC News, NBC News, CNN, The New York Times, The Washington Post, NPR and WTOP radio.
