Newhouse School of Public Communications

Newhouse’s original School of Journalism was founded in 1934 and was one of the first universities to begin offering classes on television broadcasting following World War II. The School of Public Communications has a rich history of being invested in and expanded by successful journalist and newspaper owner, Samuel I. Newhouse. Throughout the years his descendants have continued to support the school both financially and professionally. The school, although well equipped to teach you how to work in the modern media world, focuses primarily on teaching you how to tell well-crafted stories with integrity. The school offers eight different focuses with its bachelor’s program: Advertising, Broadcast & Digital Journalism, Graphic Design, Magazine, Newspaper & Online Journalism, Photography, Public Relations, and Television, Radio & Film. Their master’s program offers even more areas of study, ranging anywhere from Computational Journalism to Documentary Film & History. In 2014 the school underwent an $18 million renovation, which equipped the school with state-of-the-art media production studios, a research center for media innovation, and a digital news center. As one of the top journalism schools in New York, the Newhouse School partners with some of the leading companies in the industry. Through these partnerships the school provides students with opportunities to network and intern with some of the best in the business. The Newhouse School also hosts several study abroad programs including the Bollywood Internship and the NBC Olympics Internship. Another program that sets Newhouse apart from other journalism schools is the one that is offered specifically to active-duty service members: the Military Visual Journalism Program. This program teaches enlisted men and women how to report the news using photojournalism and broadcasting techniques.
