Why NYU?

Why NYU? Your story starts here.

You want to be a journalist, but you’ve never written a news story in your life. You’re a journalist already, but you’d like to advance in your career, learn how to host a podcast, or lead an investigation. You’re a lawyer, doctor, accountant, teacher, data analyst, insurance broker, dancer, social media manager (we’ve had them all!), and you want to launch a new career.

No matter where you start and where you want to go, NYU’s American Journalism Online Master’s Program can get you there. At NYU, we focus on you — your talents, skills, and interests — helping you figure out what you want to do and how to get there.

If you’re considering journalism grad school, read these stories from professors and graduates to see what makes AJO unique among journalism programs. If you like what you see, go ahead and apply.  You’ll be glad you did.
