Visual storytelling is thriving. From web videos to news photography to documentaries and drone journalism, media organizations are investing resources and creating new jobs in visual content specialties.
The Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at the City University of New York is at the forefront of this changing industry. In the first semester, our program trains students in the core skills that are consistent across all visual media— good shooting, writing, and editing. Fundamentals of Multimedia Storytelling introduces first-semester students to the basics of our professional tools: Canon C100 cameras and Adobe Premiere.
Then — in the second and third semesters — visual students can specialize in photojournalism, web video, broadcast, or long-form documentary, or they can choose their own combination. We are also the only school in New York City offering a class in drone journalism, taught by Professor Travis Fox who is a licensed drone pilot (far left in photo above).
