M.S. in Media, Journalism Concentration

Think globally, report locally, tell stories that change the world

Home to world-leading media practitioners, scholars and teaching facilities, Indiana University’s gorgeous Bloomington campus is an ideal setting for learning to put the revolutionary power of images and words to work in the arena of global and public affairs.

Whether you are new to journalism or looking to deepen your existing knowledge through the latest techniques and technologies, our highly-regarded journalism program has a place for you. We provide students with a solid grounding in depth reporting and multimedia storytelling along with the opportunity to specialize in a wide range of subjects that only a major research university can offer. Our aim is to produce the next generation of ethical, rigorous and innovative journalists focused on addressing the important issues of our time.

A short walk from departments or schools of business, informatics, international studies, law, languages and public and environmental affairs, IU’s brand new Media School opens doors to myriad possibilities. Journalism graduate students will acquire or hone skills in audio, data, photography, visualization, reporting, video and writing while tailoring their degrees to gain expertise in fields of their choice. They will put their skills to work through student media, local public broadcasting affiliates located on campus and other media outlets around Indiana.

Every day our students are reminded of the legacy of World War II correspondent Ernie Pyle as they pass his statue outside the renovated Franklin Hall. Within a few steps, they are passing a towering screen, light-filled atrium and state-of-the-art facilities where they’ll work and learn alongside a rich, international community of practitioners and scholars.

We live in a complex world. Our students help make sense of it every day. Join us, and be a part of our rich history and bright future. At Indiana University, you will learn to tell illuminating, inspiring stories: stories that matter.
