Since 1916, St. Joseph’s College has provided an affordable liberal arts education to a diverse group of students. Independent and coeducational, St. Joseph’s prepares students for lives of integrity, intellectual and spiritual values, social responsibility and service.
St. Joseph’s Brooklyn Campus challenges its approximately 1,200 students to develop their full potential and a joy of learning. Specifically, the Journalism and New Media Studies major draws on traditional liberal arts disciplines — including English, history and communications — and applies them to professional media practices. Students develop their writing and reporting skills for new media formats such as interactive websites and digital video. The program has a strong focus on the business side of media, leading to internships at established media outlets. Recent internship sites have included ABC 7, CBS Sports, Democracy Now! and BK Nation.
The City University of New York’s CUNY Graduate School of Journalism offers a top-notch, affordable education teaching traditional journalism values while preparing students to thrive in a rapidly changing media landscape.
As the 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.The School offers three master’s degree programs: a Masters of Arts in Journalism, the nation’s first M.A. in Entrepreneurial Journalism, and a one-year, cutting-edge M.A. in Social Journalism, which launched in January 2015.
