Journalism + Design


  • Overview

    Journalism + Design merges design thinking with time-tested journalistic principles and practice. The result is a rigorous education that prepares a new generation of journalist-designers for a rapidly changing era. We believe journalism students need to graduate with the creative capacity and confidence to thrive in today’s complex media ecosystem. Learn more about the program.
