In a sign of the times, West Virginia University's journalism school is changing its name.
The name change is intended to reflect the changing media landscape, which includes public relations as well as journalism. Dean Maryanne Reed says graduates must be able to engage with audiences across traditional and emerging media platforms.
The school was founded in 1979 by Perley Isaac Reed, a professor.
