Reporting the Nation and New York

A multifaceted journalistic approach to a multifaceted country.

Reporting New York: In Multimedia teaches reporters how to adapt themselves to the story, not the other way around. Students learn to combine and, at times, rebel against traditional media while innovating new ways to tell stories in an exciting new age of journalism.


The only thing that can hold you back is you.

We work in all mediums and learn everything from stand ups, to traditional TV and print journalism, photography, audio slideshows, audio, social media, data viz, innovative content management systems. We are always looking forward, yet we respect the past.


And we travel.

New York City and the Nation is our lab. Your work will appear in our award winning publication Pavement Pieces. You will graduate with a web portfolio filled with diverse stories in all mediums and a great launch into your career.
