About the J‑School

It Begins With Reporting

UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism is looking for the leaders of the next generation of journalists—strongly motivated individuals with reverence for truth, a hunger to discover and to inform, a deep regard for thorough analysis, and an ardent embrace of civic engagement.

The Berkeley Difference

Journalism, exclusively. No public relations, no advertising, no strategic communications.
Program built on small classes, close faculty contact, creative collaboration with outstanding fellow students.
Emphasis on producing high-quality, publishable work while enrolled.
A two-year educational immersion, because there are no shortcuts. We call our degree a Master of Journalism for a reason.

The Right Time, The Right Place

The digital explosion has created an unparalleled appetite for news as more and more people hunger to witness, experience and learn about what’s happening around them. That’s why, more than ever, our world needs professionals who are committed to reporting on contemporary realities with precision and eloquence. You’ll be prepared not just to make a living, but to make a difference.
