NEW YORK – The third class of the NYC Semester in Journalism (NYCJ) arrived in August from all over the United States. The class of 13 students (double from previous semesters) represent nine different universities.
They will participate in the unique semester-long, off-campus study program operated by the McCandlish Phillips Journalism Institute at The King’s College in NYC. The students live in student housing at King’s, where they take three classes, including capstone courses with Prof. Terry Mattingly and Prof. Paul Glader. They also work 20 hours per week in a newsroom in NYC, earning six academic credits and pursuing at least one byline per week for their portfolios.
“This is a fantastic cohort of students,” said NYCJ director Paul Glader, an associate professor in journalism and entrepreneurship at King’s. “They are making the most of their opportunity to work and study in NYC for a semester.” The program has included newsroom tours at media outlets such as The New York Times, The Associated Press, The Wall Street Journal and Buzzfeed.
