The Master of Arts degree in journalism at CUNY's Graduate School of Journalism is a new, intensive, three-semester program designed to prepare gifted graduate students for a wide variety of careers in the field of journalism. This full-time program offers students a course of study that is both broad and deep, emphasizing the eternal verities of the journalistic profession while providing ample opportunities for specialization.
There can be no more dynamic environment in which to learn and work than New York City. The city is the media capital of the world, and the Graduate School of Journalism is situated in its very heart. Located in midtown Manhattan, the School is just one block from Times Square and next door to the future home of The New York Times. With dozens of media outlets within walking distance and the whole of New York City just a subway ride away, the Graduate School of Journalism could not be more ideally located.
In addition to the plentiful resources of New York City, the School itself boasts state-of-the-art media technology and a superb faculty composed of industry professionals and veteran journalists who have chosen to bring their expertise to the classroom. Students will have daily contact with working journalists, developing mentoring relationships and making the connections that will guide them both in and out of the classroom. Students will also participate in professional internships across the city, gaining the hands-on experience that is so important during that first crucial job search.
Degree Requirements and Core courses
The course of study for the M.A. degree in Journalism is challenging and requires full-time attendance. Students complete 45-48 units of course work in three semesters, participate in a comprehensive summer internship, and produce a substantial final or capstone project.
The curriculum is built upon a core of seven common courses, followed by options for media tracks and subject matter concentrations. The core courses stress the foundation skills and knowledge that all good journalists must have, including reporting, writing and editing skills and analytic thinking needed to deal with complex subjects. Other core courses cover journalistic ethics and legal issues, research techniques, and fundamentals of interactive media such as online journalism, multimedia presentation, Web site design and blogging.
