Shaping Agile Reporters for the Future of Journalism
Our reporters cut through the noise and gain the trust of audiences through accurate, responsive multimedia reporting. In the Reporting the Nation and New York program at NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute, New York City—with all of its energy, history, and resources—is your laboratory. Journalists in our program learn by doing, creating multifaceted pieces in the city, and then they take their skills on the road to report the stories of the nation.
Produce Multimedia Journalism from Day One
Video, audio, and print. Social media, data visualization, and photography. The Reporting the Nation and New York curriculum is designed to help you build a broad base of skills and prepare you to innovate and evolve ahead of the field. It also breaks down the walls of your discomfort, getting you out into the city and nation to produce clips from the very beginning, until conducting interviews with strangers becomes second nature. And national reporting is a crucial piece of the experience: previous cohorts have traveled to Puerto Rico to cover the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, New Hampshire to cover its primary, and more.
Graduate with a Portfolio and the Skills for Success
Our journalism students contribute to Pavement Pieces throughout their time in the program, graduating with an impressive array of clips and an ideal spread of skills they honed along the way. Our curriculum also requires you to complete at least one—and up to three—internships, which means you will finish the program with on-the-job experience in addition to your portfolio. For these reasons, Reporting the Nation and New York journalism students are in demand in the industry. Recent graduates have landed full-time jobs at NBC News, Vice Media, the New York Daily News, and more.
