International Visiting Scholars Program

Over the years, the School has welcomed Visiting Scholars from many countries, who have enriched our community and taken valuable skills and perspectives home with them. The School is not taking applications from prospective participants for the 2016-17 academic year because the future shape of the program is now under discussion by the J-School faculty and administration. We expect to have more definitive information for prospective fellows by mid-December. There are two remaining ways to engage with the School, as follows:

Master’s Degree Program

Individuals interested in the advanced study of journalism are encouraged to apply to our internationally recognized two-year master’s degree program. Full details about the program, including application procures and fees.

Advanced Media Instruction

Journalists, documentary film makers, academics and other individuals interested in acquiring advanced media skills are welcome to attend a variety of short courses offered through the year by the School’s Advanced Media Institute. Details on upcoming classes
