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 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 and the world, gaining the hands-on experience that is so important during that first crucial job search.
