MANILA, June 2 — The Ateneo de Manila University is now accepting applications for second term admission to the Master of Arts in Journalism, a distance learning program for working journalists run by the Konrad Adenauer Asian Center for Journalism at the Ateneo (ACFJ). Deadline is on Thursday, 31 August; classes begin in November.
The master’s program stands out among similar programs in Asia with its use of online learning methods which makes it convenient for working journalists and other media professionals to follow the courses from their own homes and workplaces. Ten of the 13 courses comprising the program are taught using online learning methods.
Moreover, the online learning platform has given the program an international character. Since its inception in 2003 the program has attracted journalists – from reporters to senior editors – from 11 Asian countries as well as those from countries outside the region. The program’s faculty likewise comes from various parts of Asia, North America, Australia and Europe.
The master’s program is the flagship program of ACFJ, a joint project of the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS) and the Ateneo. ACFJ also offers non-degree courses including the Diploma in Radio Journalism and a number of certificate courses. Jointly with the world-renowned World Press Photo Foundation, ACFJ will launch another new program late this year, the Diploma in Photojournalism designed for working photojournalists.
Application forms to the graduate program may be requested by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and are also available from the Ateneo’s Office of Graduate Studies (OGS). For its non-degree programs, ACFJ may be reached at email@example.com .
