Welcome Class of 2024! To assist you in becoming a part of the J-School community, we invite you to participate in New Student Orientation.
The Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism’s orientation and intensive training is designed not only to prepare you for your 16 months in the program, but also for a successful career in journalism. Meet fellow students and faculty and be prepared to “hit the streets” to get the story—a fun exercise that gives your reporting professors a chance to get to know your work.
Orientation is fully in-person. We encourage you to bring your laptop each day to orientation, as you may be required to use it during particular sessions. Please be sure to review all required readings and resources prior to your orientation sessions.
Orientation/Intensive Training Dates:
- Friday, August 18, 2023 – International Student Orientation (Mandatory for International Students Only)
- Monday, August 21, 2023 – August 24, 2023 – Mandatory Orientation Sessions (ALL Students)
Important: Attendance is mandatory on all days.
Fall classes begin Friday, August 25, 2023.
