Course Objective

Turn your talents into tools designed for the ever-changing world of new media. We offer a modern blend of fundamental basics, such as writing and reporting, along with innovative curriculum to prepare upcoming investigative reporters, social media editors and data analysts.

The Master of Arts program in Journalism trains budding and experienced journalists to go deeper and equips them with subject-area expertise, so they can explain complicated issues to the public. Students develop an intellectual grounding in their concentration that enables them to ask more informed questions, evaluate evidence for competing theories and produce sophisticated and nuanced stories. This MA gives you the practical skills to work as a journalist at the highest level in broadcast, print and online. We will learn what news means, and where it comes from. We will give you the ability to write compelling features and interviews. We’ll also be focusing on the kinds of questions you need to ask – of the individual, the state or the organs of power. And we address how the new digital world has transformed the way we go about journalism, adding new platforms and new technical skills.
