Meet Medill

The best way to learn about Medill is to interact with our students, faculty and staff. We have several virtual events where you can learn more about the Medill Master of Science in Journalism (MSJ) program. We'll continue to update this page as more events are added. We hope to meet you soon.

Information sessions

During our virtual information sessions, you will talk with an admissions counselor and learn more about the application process. You may also meet faculty, current students or alums who can answer your questions about how our program can help you achieve your career goals. If you have any questions in the meantime, please email Associate Director of Graduate Admissions & Financial Aid Ryan Hays.

We also host webinars on specific topics related to the MSJ program and the application process.

Virtual Admissions office hours

We invite you to drop in for a virtual one-on-one admission counseling appointment to get answers to your questions about the application process, requirements and graduate journalism program before the application deadline. Please note, this is informal. This is not an information session or admissions interview.

Campus Tours

Visiting Medill's Chicago campus is one of the best ways to get a feel for our program and community.

Campus visits give you the opportunity to talk to an admissions director, learn more about the graduate journalism program and take a tour of our Chicago facilities.

Prearranged appointments are required to visit and tour Medill Chicago. Individuals traveling to Chicago and wishing to view the campus space should make arrangements several days in advance. We are unable to accommodate last minute drop-in or self-guided tours as Medill Chicago is closed to the public and on weekends.

Unable to attend in person? You can tour all of our campuses virtually:
