The AJO program encouraged me and my peers to take our work from the classroom and test it in the professional field of journalism. I’m incredibly grateful for the professors that challenged us to take one of NYU’s key tenets – “to learn by doing” – literally and seriously. The courses are lively and interactive spaces where I had the chance to learn about the history, significance and practice of journalism. Going through AJO was one of the most influential experiences of my life and I’m so happy to be a part of the NYU family.”
