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
