Alumni Services

Your relationship with the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at the City University of New York does not end just because you receive your diploma and head out into the professional world.

Our alumni network is now more than 1,000 strong, and we want to do everything in our power to keep you connected.

Our graduates pass on tips about job opportunities, celebrate each other’s personal and professional achievements, and return to the J-School to appear on panels, attend events, take January Academy classes, use Research Center databases, or get career advice.

The Alumni Services office does its part by sending out a quarterly e-newsletter, organizing an annual alumni homecoming, and providing an ongoing link between you and the J-School.

Below, Class of 2010 alum Simone Sebastian, now deputy America editor at The Washington Post, welcomes 2017 graduates to “the coolest club in journalism:” the Newmark J-School alumni club. She encouraged grads to embrace the unexpected: “Taking that small job at a small news outlet in a small town could lead you to the biggest story of your career.”

In the health and science concentration, I not only learned how to report on breakthroughs in science and medicine, but I gained the skills to accurately report risks, rates, stats, and trends. No matter my beat, these skills are key.
