Message from the Faculty Director
The master's in Journalism is a unique program that allows students of the profession to develop solid 21st century skills, learn from the top journalists in the field today, and network in the heart of America's democracy. The flexible learning environment and timeline allows us to cater to our student’s professional lives and brings a variety of students to our program from vastly different backgrounds. Our alumni are working all over the country at organizations ranging from smaller network television affiliates to some of the biggest news brands in the world. We pride ourselves on making sure students receive the foundational elements of journalism—accuracy, transparency, and thorough reporting—that are also grounded in a Georgetown ethical framework.
I hope to welcome you into our Georgetown SCS community and guide you through this unique time in the profession and in our democracy.
