Columbia Journalism School turns students into high-impact journalists.

Our Master of Science students develop fundamental reporting and writing skills and professional ethics—in addition to the digital fluency that 21st-century journalism demands.

Master of Arts students dig deeper. By combining three or more years of professional journalism experience with a concentration of their choosing—such as science, health and the environment, business, politics, or arts & culture—our students become stronger reporters, editors, and producers, able clearly to convey subject-area expertise. 

Our Ph.D. program connects the field of communications with an academic study of the humanities to enhance the understanding of media.

Why Columbia Journalism School?
