Master of Professional Studies in Journalism
Our program fuses traditional journalism and new media. While innovative technology may change the way news is consumed and delivered, journalists still need the same critical skills: careful, patient reporting, sophisticated storytelling, and sound, ethical judgment. Reporting is more immediate than ever, more transparent, and more interactive, with little or no margin for error. The Master of Professional Studies in Journalism graduate degree program emphasizes all of the elements needed to be a successful, adaptable journalist. Our faculty is comprised of seasoned journalists who teach students the profession of journalism through application and experience. Graduates receive a well-rounded education that gives them the skills necessary to compete in today's changing media environment. The program is designed with the working adult in mind; all classes begin after 5:00pm, allowing students the flexibility to work or intern during the day while completing their degree in the evening.
Georgetown's MPS Journalism program has partnerships with various institutions, including the National Press Club and the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. These connections provide students with valuable opportunities to network with top professionals in the journalism industry.
