About

The Journalism Entrepreneurship program of the University of Colorado at Boulder prepares students for professional careers at news outlets, and in digital and social media platforms, corporate communications and the freelance market. It particularly focuses on entrepreneurship and preparing students for today’s media environment, one in which skills in both journalism and business are essential.

Overview

Key Features

  • The Journalism Entrepreneurship program of the University of Colorado at Boulder is designed for students with a limited range of experience in journalism. Courses are offered in differing online environments. The entire program can be completed in one calendar year with students starting classes in the Augmester, then continuing in the fall and spring semesters, and finishing their professional project over the summer.
