You’ll complete your Master of Journalism degree with a capstone experience taken in Summer I semester after your last term of course work. During the capstone reporting experience, students will do their own reporting projects, within an area of specialization if appropriate. A faculty adviser will oversee weekly meetings among students to discuss common issues and progress. The goal is to produce a journalistic masterwork that will be pitched to a professional news organization. With permission, students also may fulfill this requirement by doing an internship, participating in a study-away program (with a reporting component), working in the department’s Philadelphia Neighborhoods newsroom, or collaborating on a substantial project with third parties including but not limited to Open Data Philly, Solutions Journalism Network, and the Philadelphia Media Network.
