Journalism major MU or OU

<p>Comparing Misou Univ and Oklahoma Univ for their journalism schools.
Which one is better, which one has better job placement? Which one has better networking for internships and jobs. Thanks for the inputs.</p>

<p>Neither has really good job placement stats, unless you don't mind working for a small town newsletter. You aren't going to the Washington Post or the New York Times from either of these schools. That being said, if you don't mind not being a journalist, go with whichever school is cheapest.</p>

<p>Wait, are you asking about University of Missouri at Columbia (Mizzou?) If so, it's one of the top journalism schools in the country. Stronger in broadcast journalism than in print, but either way, it offers an excellent preparation, internship opportunities and yes, job placements. Missouri so dominates in broadcast journalism that its grads are collectively called the Mizzou Mafia.</p>

<p>Yes Its Mizzou, Ive visited and have been accepted there. But like OU also.</p>

<p>Pardon the use of Wikipedia (the list on Mizzou's journalism alumni website was too long and you need to click on each alumnus for the profile):</p>

<p>ROFL! As usual, informative is full of nonsense. Mizzou is a premier journalism school - #1 or #2 by anyone's standards. It's just out of informative's backyard so he knows nothing about it. Ignore him. As for Mizzou vs Oklahoma? Hands down, Mizzou. No question.</p>

<p>LOL, yes, Missouri (MISSOURI!) IS A PERMIER journalism school. Ha!</p>

<p>PG is correct and Informative is not (correct or informative).</p>
