The Master of Arts in Journalism Entrepreneurship is a 30-credit curriculum that incorporates nine courses and a graduate professional project. The curriculum is designed to provide skills-based training grounded in the ethics and norms of journalistic practice.
This course offers a foundation in the technologies of journalistic storytelling across a variety of established and emerging media platforms, such as print, television, radio, online publications, blogs, social media and new forms of communication. You will finish the course with basic competence in the technical tools you will need as a journalist.
Summer 2020 Update: All CU Boulder summer classes will now be offered remotely, including the 2020 Media Technology Boot Camp, which begins in August. This class will be taught 100% online, without an in-person component on the CU Boulder campus.
Core classes are offered in two formats: full-session (15-week) synchronous classes and accelerated (5-week) asynchronous courses. You will take synchronous classes by using distance technologies (e.g., Zoom, Skype) to call into the same class attended by campus-based students. You will complete the coursework for your accelerated, asynchronous classes independently throughout the week.
Full Session Classes (15-week, Synchronous)

You have the option to choose one of two specialized tracks for your coursework: Sports Journalism or Journalism Entrepreneurship. Two of your core courses will focus on the specialized track you choose.
