You’ve graduated from a college or are at your final year at university – either full time or part time? You’ve got a licentiate degree in law, economy, history, political science, agronomy, technical studies, or theater, but you want to be a journalist? For 12 years now, the School of Advanced Journalism has been the place where this profession can be learned from zero in just ten months, from the best local and international journalists, who will help you become the best in this job.
New year with changes and new challenges
Since we live in the age of new media and the rise of social networks has generated new realities and standards – in journalism, too, – the key word that will define the 2018-2019 academic year at the School of Advanced Journalism is innovation.
De facto, the students of the 13th graduate class will learn to combine classical journalism with new information technologies, which can become their friends or even allies. Today, it is no longer enough for a reporter to be the best in writing news, interviews, or reports. A modern journalist, adapted to the needs of this day and age, can make photos, film, edit, and often even promote his products online, so as to catch the attention of media consumers, who are more and more hurried, demanding, and attentive to detail.
What new things you will learn at the SAJ
Our future students will work with the best journalists and media experts from Moldova and from abroad. They will share with young people knowledge about new media, about writing news reports that gather the most views, about recording sounds and images, and, most importantly, about turning it all into a good story.
Also, during the courses future students will test various applications and will film real TV reports, sometimes with just a mobile phone at hand; will learn to create a news portal and start a business in the media; will have the opportunity to meet the most interesting personalities from the world of politics, economy, and society; will participate in various local and international media projects, including study visits to Romania and Germany.
What you need to become a student of the SAJ
To become one of the 20 students of the 13th graduate class, you only need to have higher or secondary professional education, or to be in your final year at college/university, full time or part time. But, most importantly, you need to have ambition, determination, and courage – we’ll help you with the rest!
