The Joint Degree in Journalism - French Studies is a unique program from New York University that enables M.A. students to explore French Studies at the IFS while gaining professional journalism training at the NYU Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute’s Global & Joint Program.


All aspects of the M.A. program in French Studies apply to this joint Journalism - French Studies program from New York University as well except that the latter is a two-year program and students divide their time between the IFS and the Carter Journalism Institute (see a sample program of study below). In their second year, students complete an M.A. project in the form of a professional piece of journalistic work focusing on a French subject.

 Each year, a small group of students work toward a joint M.A. degree in journalism alongside a specific area studies program, known informally as “GloJo/French Studies” (Global and Joint Program Studies). Through the program, students can deepen their knowledge of the cultures, histories, and politics of Francophone societies, jump-starting careers in journalism and any number of related fields.

 On the Journalism side, the focus is intensive preparation in research, reporting, and writing along with professional-level advancement in the use of multimedia techniques and tools. We strongly encourage prospective students to visit the GloJo website
