STATE APPROVES OUR NEW SOCIAL JOURNALISM MASTER’S DEGREE

The CUNY Graduate School of Journalism is thrilled to announce that our Social Journalism master’s degree program has been approved by the New York State Education Department and will kick off its inaugural semester in January 2015.

We welcome applicants who want to join us in recasting journalism as a service that helps communities meet their goals and solve problems. Courses will focus on developing skills in listening to and engaging audiences, data analysis and presentation, social media tools, cutting-edge technology, reporting in ways that encourage participation and diversity, and business.

The new degree program will require one calendar year to complete and will include an intensive, hands-on community practicum in addition to coursework.

Learn more about our program and join our mailing list for more information.

If you’re interested in the new degree, join us on Sunday, Nov. 16 from noon-1:30 p.m. at the CUNY J-School  to meet Dr. Carrie Brown, director of the Social J initiative, hear about the application process and financial aid, and tour the facilities.
