About the Cronkite School
The Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication is widely recognized as one of the nation’s premier professional journalism and mass communications programs.

Located on Arizona State University’s Downtown Phoenix campus in a state-of-the-art media complex — with additional locations at Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. — the Cronkite School leads the way in media education with its innovative teaching hospital model, for which it has received international acclaim.
Arizona PBS, one of the nation’s largest public television stations, is part of Cronkite, making it the largest media outlet operated by a journalism school in the world.
