Biographical Note:

Established in 1915, the Henry W. Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication is a college within the University of Georgia. It is named after legendary Atlanta journalist and University of Georgia alum, Henry Woodfin Grady (1850-1889). A child of the Civil War, Grady served as editor for the Atlanta Constitution, building the newspaper into the one of the most influential publications in the nation, using the pages to urge readers to embrace a "New South" during Reconstruction. Grady often spoke and wrote about the need for the region to shift from an agricultural economy rooted in slavery to an industrial economy rooted in education.

The Grady College offers undergraduate degrees in advertising, public relations, digital and broadcast journalism, mass media arts, journalism with an emphasis in magazines, public affairs, publication management or visual journalism, and a certificate in new media. The College also offers a master's and doctoral degree in mass communication, as well as a certificate in media industry research. Accredited by the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications, Grady is a leader in journalism research and education.
