The CUNY Graduate School of Journalism opened 10 years ago and is the first public graduate journalism school in the Northeast. The mission to provide innovative approaches to visual journalism for a diverse set of students, many of whom would not normally be able to afford to attend graduate school, is central to the school’s program.
The result is visual reporting that challenges conventional ideas about New York City, emphasizing often overlooked neighborhoods and subjects. These stories, many of which have won awards, reveal a complex, vibrant and often unseen version of New York. This exhibition, curated by four visual journalism professors, presents a multimedia selection of these views of the city.
The CUNY Graduate School of Journalism prepares students from a broad range of economic, racial and ethnic backgrounds to produce high-quality journalism at a time of rapid change. We are rooted in the core skills and ethics of journalism: strong reporting and writing, critical thinking, fairness and accuracy. We teach new technologies and storytelling tools across media platforms to engage audiences and promote a broader democratic dialogue. We serve our local and global news communities by sharing our reporting, research and facilities. We serve our profession by graduating skilled journalists, diversifying the voices in the media and encouraging innovation and entrepreneurship to help build a sustainable future for journalism.
