About Journalism at DePaul

The Journalism program is located in downtown Chicago, at DePaul's Loop Campus, giving you access to the local media outlets and news organizations large and small that surround us.

DePaul's emphasis on socially responsible reporting and an experiential learning model makes our program unique. We take DePaul out into the community, and bring Chicago into our classrooms. Our students work in major media while in the program as part of their preparation for careers in digital journalism.”
