Always ahead of the curve, the Interactive Journalism program remains a pioneer in the field of online journalism. Our hands-on program – including courses in Web, Flash and backpack journalism – has been turning out the industry leaders of tomorrow.
The IJ master’s degree was developed by prescient faculty in 1999 -- a year after Google first incorporated and years before Twitter became our latest verb. Students in the first class hailed from the Baltimore Sun to WTOP.
Since admitting its first cohort, the IJ program has graduated more than 115 Web savvy media professionals who’ve gone on to successful careers, including:
- Interactive Producer, Travelchannel.com at Discovery Communications
- Graphics Editor, LA Times
- Managing Editor, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Online
- New Media Projects Editor, Las Vegas Sun
