Tours for prospective undergraduates

The Cronkite School holds regular building tours and information sessions that provide in-depth information about Cronkite’s undergraduate programs, curriculum and student opportunities.

When to visit: We recommend that prospective students visit on a weekday during the fall or spring semester, as that offers families the added opportunity to see students in action. We will do our best to accommodate visitor schedules, particularly if you’re joining us from out-of-state, however, we cannot guarantee availability. Prior to making any travel arrangements, verify that there is an Experience ASU tour available that offers an Academic Session for the Cronkite School on your planned date.

Scheduling a tour: Cronkite welcomes visitors on most dates when a campus tour is offered. Tours commence Monday through Friday on select dates.

Scheduled Cronkite tours are preceded by an ASU information session and campus tour. You can reserve your spot at visit.asu.edu/schedule. On the webpage, make selections for each drop-down section making sure to select “Journalism” for the program of interest. After hitting search, the page will update and you can then select the “Downtown Phoenix campus” bubble. A calendar will appear where you must select a date that offers both an “Experience ASU information session and tour” and an “Academic session” from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication. If you have questions about a Cronkite tour, please contact the recruitment team at attendcronkite@asu.edu.

Tours for prospective graduate students

We recommend that prospective graduate students schedule an appointment to visit the Cronkite School. Scheduling an appointment will provide the best experience and ensures the ability to meet one-on-one with a knowledgeable liaison regarding the admissions process and graduate curriculum. Visits may include a one-on-one session with admissions staff, campus tour, class visit or newscast observation.

Visits are customizable and will be coordinated based on your interests and availability. Please contact cronkitegrad@asu.edu or 602-496-9189 to schedule a visit. 

Tours for high school groups

We’re glad to arrange field trip tours for high school teachers, advisers and students interested in journalism and communications. Teachers and advisers please complete the request a visit form as soon as possible to make arrangements. Our team will try to accommodate a visit to our building as best as possible, but it is recommendable to make the request at least 3 weeks in advance of your preferred visit date.
