About National Journalism Center

Since launching in 1977, the National Journalism has graduated more than 4,000 journalists. Today, we estimate more than 1,000 continue to work in media and media-related positions at a variety of organizations. In addition, NJC alumni have written more than 100 books, some of which have developed from ideas and projects at the National Journalism Center.

NJC students are often rising seniors or recent graduates, so an emphasis is placed on developing valuable workplace skills to assist all students in their job searches. The program also offers networking opportunities, sessions on resume crafting and interview skills, and valuable career coaching during and after the program.
