M.S. in Media, Journalism Concentration

For more than 100 years, IU has helped define and advance the field of journalism through its teaching, research, student media and world-renowned alumni. From giants of news history including famed World War II correspondent Ernie Pyle and Associated Press pioneer Kent Cooper to contemporaries such as ESPN SportsCenter’s Sage Steele and NPR television critic Eric Deggans, our alumni have been innovative and award-winning leaders in print, broadcast and digital news.

Graduate students in journalism build on that legacy every day at The Media School, working and learning alongside faculty members with extensive experience in public affairs and investigative journalism. Our aim is to produce the next generation of ethical, rigorous and innovative journalists to cover the important issues of our time.

Work in the new Arnolt Center for Investigative Journalism

Beginning in fall 2019, IU will further expand its commitment to journalism with the opening of the Michael I. Arnolt Center for Investigative Journalism. Funded by a $6 million gift from alumnus Michael Arnolt, the center will focus on teaching and producing high-quality investigative journalism for Indiana and beyond.

Incoming students will have the opportunity to work as fellows in the center as part of a graduate school experience centered on investigative and public affairs journalism. The curriculum focuses on multiplatform reporting and storytelling, including courses in investigative reporting, data journalism and visual communication.
