University of Oklahoma School of Journalism vs. Mizzou School of Journalism

Hi guys!

I would like to obtain a degree in international journalism and become proficient in Arabic. I'm currently looking into Mizzou and OU. I'm from Missouri, so I would have to pay out-of-state tuition if I chose OU.

I know that Mizzou has an excellent journalism program, but OU's international program is superior. OU has a much more diverse range of international studies courses and more Arabic courses than I could take in eight semesters. Mizzou only offers two.

If I went to OU, I would double major in international studies and journalism. At Mizzou, I would major in international journalism.

I suppose that it will come down to the best financial aid package.

Does anyone have opinions or advice?

    I haven't heard anything about OU as far as journalism, but I do know that Mizzou's program is very good, and in-state tuition is good as far as $$$. But sometimes OOS can be cheaper depending on financial aid given. But I really don't know anything about financial aid for either of those two schools.

    I also realized that you don't have to get a journalism degree to be a journalist. I would like to major in International Studies and minor in finance. Missouri State is looking like the best option... Besides OU. Thanks for your help!
