CAMPUS SPECIFIC INFORMATION

The Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY, founded in 2006, has become nationally recognized for its innovative programs. The only public graduate journalism school in the northeastern U.S., it prepares students from diverse economic, racial, and cultural backgrounds to produce high-quality journalism.

 

As the profession continues to reinvent itself for the digital age, the Newmark J-School is at the forefront of equipping the next generation of journalists with the reporting, writing, interactive, technological, and entrepreneurial skills they need to find stories and tell them effectively. The school currently offers a Master of Arts in Journalism, a unique bilingual M.A. in Journalism for students fluent in English and Spanish, and the nation's first M.A. in Social Journalism.

 

The Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY is seeking a Distinguished Lecturer to serve as the Director for the Arts and Culture Reporting Concentration, beginning in Fall 2021.

 

Students in our Arts and Culture Reporting Program approach the topic from a variety of perspectives, including arts reviews, cultural criticism, the economics of culture industries, and how arts organizations work. Additionally, the program recognizes the radical transformation arts organizations face as they come out of the pandemic. Students dig into historical and contemporary issues such as copyright, censorship, digital culture, and the growing influence of fandom to provide context for their reported stories. 

 

Our graduates have found jobs as writers, editors, videographers and producers at such news organizations as ABC News, The Atlantic, Bustle, the Daily Meal, Marie Claire, The New York Times, Sports Illustrated, Studio360, Time, Vox and The Wall Street Journal.
