Grow Your Expertise. Advance Your Career.

The Master of Arts in Journalism Entrepreneurship gives you the professional skills and knowledge to hone your journalistic skills, build your own brand effectively, be a successful freelancer, and to start or reinvent a media organization.

Education That Works the Way You Do

  • In early August, first-year students and program faculty come together for the Media Boot Camp—a 1- to 3-week course in Boulder, Colorado—to learn how to use various media technologies invaluable to journalistic storytelling. This dynamic educational experience—the only required residency of the program—allows you to connect to campus, faculty members, and classmates.
  • Afterward, complete up to four online/distance courses each semester without ever taking more than two classes at a time:
    • Use distance technologies to participate in one 15-week class each semester that brings together on-campus and online students.
    • Complete 1 to 3 five-week, asynchronous courses each semester.

Build Connections

  • The program offers you an opportunity to network with other professionals in media and journalism including faculty, industry practitioners, and classmates. Networking happens via distance technologies, online discussions and interactions, and during the on-campus media boot camp in early August. These interactions create a sense of community that underpins the program and yields lasting relationships as you advance in your media or journalism career.

  • You have two options for completing the Media Boot Camp:
    • Complete the first week of coursework in Boulder and the remaining two weeks remotely,
    • ​Remain on campus for all three weeks of the course.

You must secure your own lodging in Boulder for the boot camp.

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.
