Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y. will begin offering a Master of Arts degree in journalism this fall.
The new program will offer evening classes and a choice of specialization in either science/health or business journalism. The program is for working journalists who want an advanced degree but also undergraduates majoring in the sciences, public health, or business, high school journalism teachers and adults looking for a career change.
?This is a time of tremendous upheaval in the news business, with new technologies offering consumers new sources for news and information and the credibility of news organizations being called into question,? said Sybil DelGaudio, dean of the School of Communication, in a statement. ?There is a greater need than ever for journalists who posses the depth of understanding and skills they need to do their job and the ethical grounding that is so necessary in this profession.?
For more information or to apply to the program, contact Professor Matt Sobnosky at 516.463.7141 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
