One of the exciting things about Media Studies at USF are the many opportunities students have to make and be a part of a team that makes media. These opportunities include a radio station, a newspaper, and a television station.
KUSF is the University's internet streaming audio service. The service can be found at kusf.org and can be heard throughout the world. KUSF as an FM station (1977-2011) was known both nationally and internationally for its innovative programming and approach to music. Located on the USF campus KUSF has been closely involved with the emergence of new music and the new music business. KUSF invites students, both those in Media Studies and other majors, to use KUSF as a recreation activity as well as a training facility. Students may also utilize KUSF for academic and workshop projects and receive academic credit. Alumni of KUSF (FM) have often been very successful in pursuit of employment in the radio and music industries.
The San Francisco Foghorn is the student-run newspaper where the University community can find out what is happening on campus and exchange diverse views and ideas. The San Francisco Foghorn, whose motto is "Freedom and Fairness," is dedicated to providing up-to-date news and information for the University of San Francisco audience in its print and online editions.
