Master of Arts in Public Media

Fordham's Master of Arts in Public Media program teaches students to tell stories about and for the public good in ways that promote dialogue, civic engagement, and social change. Students engage with media theory while building their own portfolio and getting hands-on experience from some of the top public broadcasting professionals in the country, including program partners and two pioneers in public radio and television—WFUV and WNET. Students in this 30-credit master's program can choose between two tracks: Multiplatform Journalism and Strategic Communication. This program can be completed in one year on a full-time basis with evening courses that allow for daytime fieldwork and internships. It's about real journalism, real communication strategies, and real stories—media with a mission.
