The UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism educates the leaders of the next generation of journalists.
The digital explosion has created an unparalleled appetite for news as more and more people hunger to witness, experience and learn about what’s happening around them. That’s why, more than ever, our world needs professionals who are committed to reporting on contemporary realities with precision and eloquence.
Since its founding 45 years ago during Berkeley’s watershed Free Speech Movement, the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism has graduated more than 2,000 students. Alumni have gone on to win virtually every major industry award and to staff–and run–the country’s top news organizations. Widely regarded as one of the country’s best journalism programs, it is also one of the only remaining two-year master of journalism programs in the United States and is the only graduate-level journalism program in the vast, publicly funded University of California system.
A recent gift from the Jonathan Logan Family Foundation has allowed U.C. Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism to transform its library into a fully modernized assembly hall and media broadcast center, including audio and video technical facilities. One of the programs underwritten by this upgrade is the “On Mic,” a series of podcast presentations that feature both recorded and live conversations with high-profile speakers and panels for worldwide, electronic distribution. soundcloud.com/j-school-talks
