About

The Master of Arts (MA) in New Arts Journalism at School of the Art Institute of Chicago is designed to provide students with the necessary skills and experiences to write about the arts for diverse audiences. 

Overview

Located in a vibrant school of contemporary art and design, the MA in New Arts Journalism program provides full engagement with the theory and practice of journalism as well as the opportunity to work closely with artists, art historians, cultural theorists, and art critics connected to a major American museum.

Learning outcomes

School of the Art Institute of Chicago interdisciplinary ethos creates an ideal environment for the New Arts Journalism student to engage directly with artists, designers, and writers in order to develop an instinct for seeing the broader issues that underpin events in the world of contemporary art.

Unlike other arts journalism graduate programs, SAIC is a thriving site for students to combine in-depth knowledge of the arts along with the study of the rubrics of journalism. The New Arts Journalism program helps aspiring journalists to refine their writing of reviews, essays, interviews, and feature stories, and examine the contexts of investigative reporting, the opinion piece, the documentary, and the critical essay in the context of art. Every student participates in at least one internship, which offers a valuable, hands-on experience working at a Chicago media venue. The concluding thesis may comprise a publication or zine, investigative journalism, an extended narrative, or original research.
