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 Assistant Director Ryan Hays.

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

Interviews

Admissions Interviews are optional, though recommended for applicants who would like to address any application area of concern with an admissions officer, such as a lack of journalism course work and/or experience, career changes or academic concerns. The Medill Office of Graduate Admissions and Financial Aid will also reserve the right to request an interview with an applicant if deemed necessary. You can schedule an interview during your selected application Round (please note each Round has a final date that an interview must be scheduled by). We encourage you to schedule your interview prior to submitting your application. Interviews are held via Zoom or similar service.

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.
