The Cronkite School is nationally recognized as one of the nation’s leading journalism schools. In recent months, both the Times of London and The New York Times have singled out the school as an innovator in journalism education.
As “the journalism school for the digital age,” the Cronkite School teaches students how to apply traditional journalism fundamentals across digital, broadcast, text and interactive media platforms.
Students graduate as multimedia journalists, prepared not only for the jobs of today but ready to create the jobs of tomorrow.
They receive a broad-based liberal arts education, with 80 credits in liberal arts complementing the 40-credit journalism major at Cronkite, where they take classes from renowned journalists such as former executive editor of The Washington Post Leonard Downie Jr., former CNN anchor Aaron Brown and former vice president of BET Interactive Retha Hill.
Cronkite students have the best record in the annual Hearst intercollegiate journalism competition, often called the Pulitzers of college journalism, overall over the past six years. And they have finished first in the Society of Professional Journalists’ Mark of Excellence Awards nationally for six of the past seven years. They also have the best record in Broadcast Education Association's contest for the past consecutive four years.
Classes are taught in a $71 million, state-of-the-art journalism building that has the most sophisticated technology found anywhere in the country. And because the school is located in downtown Phoenix, the nation’s sixth-largest city and 13th-largest media market, students are within walking distance of dozens of media outlets where they complete internships and connect with professionals as well as major governmental, sporting and cultural venues.
In addition to internships, students obtain real-world industry experience in the school’s innovative professional programs, which include:
High-performing students can become part of ASU’s Barrett, The Honors College. Students may also opt for specializations in Latino issues or business journalism or minors in a related area.
