Shield is written, designed and produced by students at Rochester University.The faculty in the Mass Communication Department train and oversee students in the preparation and production of these outlets.
Working in these areas offers students the opportunity to use their creative talents in producing content while at the same time gaining valuable media experience. Mass Comm majors are required to work for SHIELD, and students from other majors are welcome to participate. Scholarships are available to students who work as editors and managers.
Shield Media is the independent student media of Rochester University. As such, we are committed to engaging in thoughtful dialogue over issues relevant to our culture. Shield Media relates to our audience by providing them with bold stories that are intended to entertain, inform and stimulate.
Shield Media participates in Rochester University's faith-based mission, and believes that, as ethically minded journalists, we have a responsibility to engage each story with open-mindedness, compassion and nuance.
Along with Rochester University’s Department of Mass Communication, Shield Media prepares young professionals for work in media-related fields by teaching and honing their skills in writing, reporting, graphic design, broadcasting, videography and photography.
Shield Media is a student and not a college publication. Views expressed are diverse, and of course, do not correspond to all views of RU's board, administration, faculty, staff, students or other constituency.
