Michigan Communication and Media Professionals (MCMP)
The department sponsors the Michigan Communication and Media Professionals (MCMP), an undergraduate student group open to Communication and Media majors and prospective majors. The organization meets on a regular basis in the fall and winter terms to explore career and internship opportunities in communication and media-related markets. A primary goal of MCMP is to provide a forum that encourages student leadership, social interaction, networking, and professional development.
Our MCMP peer advisors can answer questions about general major requirements, internship planning, resume and cover letter advice, and provide information about MCMP. Meet the E-Board.
Our majors also engage with student organization related to the fields of media and communication, such as Society of Professional Journalism (SPJ), WOLV TV, The Michigan Daily, and WCBN-FM Radio.

The Michigan Daily
The Michigan Daily exists to inform the University of Michigan and the Ann Arbor communities about events and issues of consequence to the University and Washtenaw County.We will maintain an entirely independent, student-run newspaper because we believe a voice separate from the University ensures our ability to hold the administration accountable and protect our coverage from outside interests.We strive in all cases to uphold impartiality, fairness and the complete truth. We strive for equitable coverage in our representation of all communities, identities and groups. For more information visit michigandaily.com
