Students will either enter the masters program having completed the one-year bachelor of Journalism, or having requisite education or experience in journalism practice.
The 10-month masters program runs from June to April with a 12 of 30 credits in the summer term, and 9 in each of the fall and winter terms. In summer and fall terms, students will stay in residence while in the winter term their capstone professional project may be done off campus.
SUMMER & FALL TERMS
The first two terms prime students for a career in the ever-changing world of journalism in the digital age. They will learn storytelling from a multi-platform approach. Students then broaden their ability to do investigative research. They master the ability to find data in public records, and then discover how to harness emerging data analysis technologies to craft fascinating, investigative projects.
