The King’s College is pleased to announce a new partnership with Ecole Superieure De Journalisme De Communication (ESJC), a journalism and communication school in Casablanca, Morocco. Founded in 2008, ESJC is a three-year degree granting institution established to train journalists and media professionals. It is owned by Eco Media, the largest private media group in Morocco.

Through the partnership, ESJC students are eligible to apply to and attend The King’s College as visiting students through the New York City Semester program (NYCS). Students will receive ESJC course credit for their semester at King’s.

ESJC is one of 35 partner institutions that participate in The King’s College’s NYCS, with tracks in journalism, theater and business. ESJC is the sixth international partner school, joining other institutions in Uganda, Indonesia, Lithuania and Norway.

In the journalism track, students take three courses at The King’s College—Journalism Foundations (3 credits), Entrepreneurial Journalism Skills and the Future (3 credits) and an elective course of the student’s choosing (3 credits). Journalism students also intern 20 hours per week at a news media organization in New York City (6 credits). Likewise, the tracks in business and theater include discipline-specific courses, elective courses and the opportunity to pursue an internship for credit. All NYCS students interact with guest speakers on campus, meet with professionals at work and learn how to practice Christian faith within the competitive environment of their industry.

This partnership agreement came through the work of ESJC general manager Khalid Belyazid and Paul Glader, co-director of the New York City Semester in Journalism track and an associate professor of journalism at The King’s College.

Belyazid says, “ESJC managers, teachers and students are so proud to belong to The King’s College NYCS network. We hope we’ll build a bridge between Casablanca and New York, two dynamic cosmopolitan Atlantic cities. The best vehicles for this bridge are education, journalism and communication that allow the people to overcome borders.”

Interested students can apply at www.tkc.edu/nycs. Upon acceptance into the program, King’s will issue students a J-1 visa for the semester of study. Tuition and housing payment for the semester will be made directly to The King’s College before classes begin. Any international students interested in the journalism track should apply for the Arne Fjeldstad Memorial Scholarship, which provides $20,000 each year to qualified students.

Since 1938, The King’s College has educated young leaders to integrate their faith, ethics and morality seamlessly into their lives and careers. The only traditional Christian liberal arts college or university located in the heart of New York City, King’s prepares students for principled leadership around the world.
