Admissions

Geraldine Baum

If you’re considering a graduate degree in journalism at the Newmark J-School, our admissions staff is here to answer your questions and walk you step by step through the application process. 

We are a tight-knit community that believes in the value of one-on-one relationships, and we actively promote them from the moment you first express interest in our school to long after you complete your course of study and enter the journalism profession. 

We seek applicants from a variety of academic and professional backgrounds. Whether you’re a recent college graduate, a working journalist, or a career changer, we encourage you to apply. We also want classes that reflect the city and the world we live in. More than half of our students are people of color and some 13% come from countries outside the United States. 

Come to the Newmark J-School and learn from our world-class faculty of working journalists in the classroom that is New York City.
