Train as a Journalist, Earn an MFA
Students in the NYU Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute’s Literary Reportage program learn the art of journalism in an intensive writing program that places equal emphasis on elegant writing and rigorous reporting. They are the storytellers of the world, and, here, they follow their curiosity to craft compelling, deeply researched, stylish work that comes to life on the page. They graduate fully formed journalists with an MFA degree to reflect the richness and depth of their writing training.
Literary Reportage students take on a robust curriculum of writing, reporting, and audio reportage courses, and they graduate fully capable of writing articles and books and producing podcasts.
