University of California Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism

The UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism–informally known as the J-School–offers a rigorous, two-year professional master’s degree for approximately 120 students.

At Berkeley students learn to be both nimble and focused. The School’s emphasis is on mastering a wide variety of techniques while learning the highest standards of responsible and enterprising journalism. They begin by reporting and producing local news, features, and in-depth accounts, using advanced cross-platform tools. Then they reach further, deepening their command of their platform of choice: new media, short-form video, print, audio, photojournalism, or documentary film.

Advanced classes offer depth in topical reporting–such as covering the environment, business or health care–while others teach data visualization, investigative reporting, coding for journalists and various specialized competencies. By the end of their second year students have created a portfolio of ambitious, high-quality work, much of it published–with the help of our exceptional faculty of seasoned journalists.

Beyond skills training, students get an education that exposes them to the values and civic purpose that have made journalism indispensable to a democratic society. The School draws 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.
