The courses of the Chisinau School of Advanced Journalism began

On 2 September the courses of the Chisinau School of Advanced Journalism (CSAJ) began.  For ten months, in a newsroom environment, sixteen young people will benefit of intensive professional training and gain practical skills.

The opening ceremony of the study year was attended by the School trainers, journalist Maia Metaxa, Nadine Gogu and Cristina Mogâldea, Independent Journalism Center (IJC). Also during the first study day, the current students met with the students of the previous classes. The graduates of the past seven classes shared their experience and advised with the freshly enrolled students on how to overcome the difficulties they may encounter during the studies, but also when looking for a job. During the academic year 2013-2014, 5 boys and 11 girls were enrolled to CSAJ. The average age of the students is 25. Their academic background is very diverse including law, anthropology, political science, tourism, economics and acting. Two of the students completed their studies in journalism in Romania.

This year, similar to previous years, the courses will be held by prominent national and foreign journalists. The study program consists of two semesters. The first semester covers the basics of writing and editing stories for press, while the second is intended for specialization, practice and final project writing. The articles produced by the students will be published on several leading web pages in the Republic of Moldova.

The Chisinau School of Advanced Journalism was launched on 4 September 2006 with the purpose of training journalists for media in the Republic of Moldova. Since 2006 until now, over 100 young media makers graduated this institution. Most of them are employed with media outlets in the Republic of Moldova such as Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, TV Moldova 1, Pro TV, TV 7, Publika TV, Ziarul de Garda, TeleRadio Gagauzia, Adevarul and other.

Chisinau School of Advanced Journalism is a project of the Independent Journalism Center, launched in cooperation with the Missouri School of Journalism, USA; The Center of Professional Training of Journalists in Paris, France; and Free Press Unlimited, The Netherlands.
