|Description:||The Journalism – New Media program is purposely small in number, therefore ensuring students receive individualized guidance and coaching as they work directly with faculty through project-based learning. The program caters to graduates of university and college programs from diverse academic backgrounds, industry professionals in need of retraining, and/or those with substantial life experience seeking practical, hands-on training in one short, intensive year. Students gain valuable experience and opportunity by participating in a mandatory 4-6 weeks work placement (paid or unpaid) in the news and information industry. Internships are typically completed at the end of the 8-month program but before graduation in June. In addition to the tuition fees for this program, students should plan to spend an additional $1,000 maximum for ancillary supplies, software and web accounts.
