Students can study Journalism + Design as a major (BA, Journalism + Design), a minor, or a self-designed major (BA or BS, Liberal Arts).
You’ll learn from cutting-edge, respected professionals and scholars from the fields of both journalism and design. This program has been developed based on the belief that a free press is an essential part of a functioning democracy, and it allows you to focus on your own area of interest, whether that be food, fashion, or the environment. You’ll be grounded in the fundamentals of serious journalism while being pushed to explore its boundaries.
The Journalism + Design program was created in consultation with some of the most prominent minds in news innovation as well as traditional journalism. Advisors and friends of the program come from the New York Times, The Guardian, ProPublica, The Center for Investigative Reporting, WNYC, and The Knight Foundation. This groundbreaking program is distinguished by its focus on journalistic practice supported by the design process. The flexibility of the program allows for student feedback to help shape its future direction.

The New School maintains an extensive program of scholarships and grants-in-aid based on academic merit and demonstrated financial need. Awards are usually made as part of the admission process. Institutional scholarships may be combined with government supported grants and loans in a single financial aid package. Scholarships and grants are normally applied to tuition costs. They can range from several hundred dollars to full tuition and do not require repayment.Scholarships may be reduced or canceled if requested applications and verification documents are not received by the stated deadlines. Need-based scholarships do not automatically renew for the same amount in subsequent years. Changes in need calculations, late FAFSA submission, or refusal of a subsidized student loan may result in a modified award.
Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS, Studyportals offers you the chance to receive up to £10000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
