Join A New Generation of Specialized Journalists
If you are a professional, a scholar, or any other subject-matter specialist, we’ll teach you to become a leading journalist in your specialty for media around the world. Join our next cohort.
The Fellowship in Global Journalism is unlike any conventional journalism school: We mentor you as you actually cover your own speciality for top media around the world. When you graduate in April 2016, you will already be an experienced global correspondent, ready for editors who want deeper reporting.
WE TEACH YOU THE FUNDAMENTALS
We start in September 2015, with a five-week bootcamp in Toronto where you'll start learning the fundamentals: how to find and pitch exclusive stories, how to report facts rigorously, how to write features and how to do audio. (Meet Your Instructors)
WE MENTOR; YOU REPORT FOR TOP MEDIA
From mid-October 2015, from your base anywhere in the world, you'll be reporting news and participating in a unique curriculum of seminars. A team of experienced correspondents and editors will mentor you individually as you pitch and report stories for our partners -- and as you plan your full-time or part-time career in reporting.
YOU GRADUATE AS AN ESTABLISHED, GLOBAL JOURNALIST
By April 2016, your combination of deep subject-matter knowledge and real reporting experience for audiences around the world will set you apart from other journalists. Some graduates are now reporting full time; others part-time while they return to their professions. They're succeeding as freelancers, staff reporters and media entrepreneurs.
No other journalism program, anywhere, turns specialists into global correspondents the way we do.
