From now until April 3oth, the City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate School of Journalism will be accepting applicants for its new subject concentration, Spanish-Language Journalism. At the School of Journalism, bilingual Master’s degree candidates will get the opportunity to cover stories about their communities in the United States or overseas.
The curriculum will include several fundamentals in journalism courses, and three subject classes that will be in Spanish. The students have to produce all their assignments in Spanish.
Graciela Mochkofsky, an award-winning Argentinian author, journalist, and teacher will be the director of the program. For almost 25 years, Mochkofsky has hopped back and forth between the U.S., Europe, and South America as a journalist after receiving her degree in the subject from Columbia University. She got her start at Página/12 and later became a senior political correspondent for La Nación, both Argentine papers. At Spain, she worked for El País, and in the U.S., the New Yorker.
She has described her style as:
An original combination of American-style watchdog investigative journalism, literary narrative style, and plenty of opinion columns.”
By fall of this year, the School of Journalism plans to welcome a select few 15 students. By the time students are finished with the program they will receive both reporting and digital skills that will prepare them for the Hispanic media market.
