The Master of Arts in Journalism prepares graduates for work and service in the rapidly changing profession of journalism. Stories must now be told in multiple platforms — print, broadcast, audio, video, and on the internet. Reporters must learn to conceptualize and present stories for these diverse outlets.
The program emphasizes the responsibility of journalists to contribute to the informed citizenry that makes democracy and social justice possible. Students will actively engage and critically examine digital technologies in our state-of-the-art Loop Campus facilities. DePaul's Journalism faculty is joined by some of Chicago's finest and most experienced reporters and editors. Students will develop the skills to construct news narratives that add value to stories citizens see in this intensively competitive and extraordinarily promising moment in journalism's history.
