Our entrepreneurial journalism program aims to help create a sustainable future for quality journalism. We believe we can achieve this by training visionary thinkers who will develop new business models and innovative projects – either working on their own, with startups, or within traditional media companies.
We offer two pathways to that end: a two-year master’s degree program or a 15-week advanced certificate course of study.
If you’re interested in earning an M.A. in Entrepreneurial Journalism, you start by applying to the M.A. in Journalism program. For the first three semesters, you follow the same regular journalism curriculum, then you continue on for a fourth semester to develop a startup venture while taking five specialized entrepreneurial classes.
You will also participate in regular guest sessions with leading CEOs and experts and visit startups and innovation hubs that have included Twitter, Facebook, Kickstarter, Buzzfeed, IDEO, NYTimes.com, and McKinsey.
