The School of Journalism at IUPUI welcomes students from all over the world who are drawn to a master’s degree program that is tailored to their career goals. Students may specialize in sports journalism, or two areas of public relations, management or health and science.
With Indianapolis as a training ground, students work on projects and portfolios tapping into the city's medical facilities and health organizations and its many public relations firms. The area also has cultivated a reputation as a sports center as it is home to professional sports leagues as well as headquarters of several sports organizations and industries.
The School of Journalism offers master of the arts degrees in sports journalism and in public relations. The public relations degree prepares students for this dynamic field through specific courses and opportunities. It includes three specialty areas so that students can fine-tune the focus of their work and become experts in their fields.
The newest master's degree in sports journalism capitalizes on the IU National Sports Journalism Center's proximity and its professors and adjunct faculty who come from long careers at top media organizations. The Associated Press Sports Editors organization recently located to the NSJC, and students working on master's degrees will have access to a long list of professionals as mentors and supporters.
