At the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, change is in our DNA. That comes of being born in 2006, as the digital revolution was transforming our profession in ways none of us could have imagined.
We fashioned a school to teach the latest storytelling, entrepreneurial, and technological skills alongside reporting, writing, and ethics. Beyond that, we’ve crafted a culture that spurns complacency, that isn’t afraid to pivot before the ground under us shifts.
We are the only publicly funded graduate journalism school in the heart of the media capital; indeed, in the entire Northeast. Our mission is to serve the public interest – by training new journalists who will bring much-needed diversity to newsrooms, by helping mid-career journalists retool their skills, and by partnering with other media organizations to find new paths to excellence.
Our low tuition rates, along with the added backing of private donors, allow candidates for our three master’s degrees — in journalism, entrepreneurial journalism, and social journalism — and our Advanced Certificate in Entrepreneurial Journalism to receive a world-class education at an affordable price.
Our three media centers provide research, training, thought leadership, industry meet-ups, and financial support for quality journalistic work.
At a time when our profession is reeling from financial pressures and lack of trust, the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism is committed to producing the next generation of skilled, ethically minded, and diverse journalists.
We invite you to be part of our world.
