About this program

MS in Journalism

We stand at a crucial and exciting time in the field of journalism with new techniques for gathering, producing and reporting the news. Our Master of Science in Journalism program places you at the forefront of this evolution, teaching you how to create engaging stories across numerous platforms while maintaining the highest commitment to integrity and professionalism.

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.

Admission requirements

The School of Communications invites applications from prospective students who wish to pursue the professional practice of journalism. Recent graduates of a bachelor’s degree program outside of the communications or journalism fields are welcome to apply, as are prospective students who are presently working and wish to either shift careers or enhance their professional standing.

Those applicants with a bachelor’s degree outside of the communications or journalism field, and with no previous experience in the field, will be required to complete a two-week “boot camp” prior to enrolling in the fall semester. At no additional cost to the student, the journalism boot camp will provide students with the basic fundamentals of the practice of journalism, preparing them for success in the graduate program.

To be considered for admission to the MS in Journalism program, you must first possess a bachelor’s degree with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0.
