MA New Media Photojournalism

The New Media Photojournalism program at the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design is the first of its kind, created to help visual journalists study and address the changing world of photojournalism.

Emphasizing strong storytelling skills and fluency in multimedia platforms, the Master of Arts in New Media Photojournalism program incorporates writing, photography, audio, video, and web design to prepare students to work as freelancers, visual reporters, editors and producers. The program emphasizes the individual as a visual reporter and encourages experimentation with new ways of storytelling, documentation and editing. The program also encourages its students to explore the latest digital practices taught in conjunction with the enduring fundamentals of visual reporting, editing, and ethics.

Through intensive faculty mentoring in conjunction with a broad and flexible program of study and internship opportunities, students choose and develop their professional paths. In addition to the Washington Post, National Public Radio, National Geographic and Discovery Communications, countless newspapers, magazines, trade journals and major media outlets are located within a five-mile radius of the Corcoran's downtown campus.

Graduates of the Master of Arts in New Media Photojournalism program are prepared to take on and excel in careers in a wide range of visual media—including photography, picture and video editing, documentary production and multimedia management—and are prepared to lead a new generation of photojournalists as the field continues to change with technology.
