Quinnipiac’s MS in Journalism program molds multitalented writers, reporters and producers who can tell compelling stories across all distribution platforms. Our 30-credit curriculum blends the traditional with the contemporary, featuring a core that emphasizes digital production, reporting, storytelling and ethics.
Our flexible, elective structure enables students to explore unique areas of inquiry focused on subjects such as arts and culture, race, politics and public health. This area of inquiry will form the basis of a required, two-semester multimedia capstone project. During your capstone, you’ll collaborate with a faculty adviser as you produce work that demonstrates high levels of professional polish, creative vitality and journalistic integrity.
At the heart of our program is an emphasis on real-time learning and real-world experience. The production facilities at the Ed McMahon Communications Center support both studio and remote productions, and feature the same state-of-the-art news gathering, audio and video equipment you’ll encounter as a professional. Here, you’ll master the latest technology and learn the most innovative techniques for producing, editing and presenting information to the public.
As you develop a versatile skillset, you’ll also learn about the business from seasoned professionals — our faculty. They’ll inspire you to harness your passion, take the lead and get serious about your career in journalism.
