Journalism Educators (M.A. and Graduate Certificate)

Kent State’s graduate-level programs in Journalism Education give current and future educators the tools needed to effectively teach journalism and advise scholastic media at the high school/post-secondary level. The School of Media and Journalism (MDJ) offers two fully online tracks to meet this demand:

These programs are ideal for high school teachers who are currently teaching journalism/yearbook classes or advising scholastic media and wish to earn graduate credit and certification. Media professionals who wish to take graduate coursework to facilitate teaching in the post-secondary space will also find these flexible programs to be a great fit.

Coursework for both programs is fashioned using information and guidelines from the School’s Center for Scholastic Journalism, an advocate for student press freedom and national clearinghouse for information for and about student journalists and their advisers. The Center is supported by an endowment for the John F. and James L. Knight Foundation.
