At the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at the City University of New York, we have a simple goal: to attract a diverse group of the highest caliber aspiring journalists to our academic programs, then to guide and support them every step of the way, from application to graduation and beyond.
You will learn in a small, intimate community where the average class size is 11 students.
What kind of students are we looking for?
Whether you come straight out of college, are already a practicing journalist, or are seeking a new career, you should demonstrate a knack for storytelling, a passion for news, and a commitment to the journalism profession.
We want students who will react to any event with questions, and more questions. We want students determined to find out how and why things work as they do.
We can teach the mechanical skills — how to use public records, how to write a lede, how to operate audio and video equipment. But it’s that innate sense of curiosity and a passion for the truth that will lead to success in our field.
