Pursuing excellence in media & public affairs

In 1998, the Manship School of Mass Communication established the nation's first and only doctoral program specializing in media & public affairs. Soon after, the school's Reilly Center for Media & Public Affairs was formed, with the mission of generating thoughtful programs, dialogue, and research on mass communication and its many faceted relationship with social, economic, and political issues. Manship students stay engaged in the local, state, and national public affairs conversations of the day through events like the annual Breaux Symposium and the Sports Communication Summit, and hosting the 2014 U.S. Senate debate, and the 2015 Louisiana Gubernatorial debate.
