The journalism and publishing fields are in flux as never before. But with rapid change comes a rare opportunity to do something radically new. Join others who are eager to elevate culture through smart prose and artful design. Explore the new MA in Creative Publishing and Critical Journalism at the world-renowned New School for Social Research in New York City.

The program’s approach is open and experimental — a radical departure from traditional writing, journalism, and publishing programs. The curriculum leaves students free to explore both writing and scholarship in course topics ranging from new media and data visualization to critical theory and new forms of social inquiry. Core courses bring students together to study topics like the history of the book, the fate of truth in modern media, and the future of publishing. Studies culminate in a capstone studio lab where students are asked to jointly create new publications of their own design, spanning various forms and media.

The Creative Publishing and Critical Journalism graduate students go beyond typical writing assignments to develop clear and critical thinking skills necessary to become media-savvy writers of the future. Unlike other programs, students study the history of the written word, as well as develop sustainable business models for future publications. Each student completes a signature project meant to demonstrate a range of skills, whether in writing and editing, or in publishing and design.

Join the writers of today who are redefining the written word of tomorrow. Apply to the MA in Creative Publishing and Critical Journalism at The New School.
