The Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY offers two Master of Arts degrees: a three-semester M.A. in Journalism and a four-semester M.A. in Entrepreneurial Journalism. Both are full-time programs with a paid summer internship between the second and third semesters. The School is located next door to the headquarters of the New York Times and a mere 15-minute walk from The Graduate Center.
As the journalism profession reinvents itself for the digital age, the CUNY J-School is at the forefront of equipping the next generation of journalists with the tools to find stories and tell them effectively—using print, broadcast, visual, interactive, and social media. Candidates for the M.A. in Journalism choose one of five subject specialties: arts & culture, business & economics, health & science, international, or urban reporting. Entrepreneurial students spend the fourth semester studying a blend of business, technology, and journalism while they develop their own startup projects.
