About Us

Our program, a 9.5 month university program in arts journalism, has a record for fundamentally changing the way we look at the arts & culture & entertainment & creativity, and how we tell stories about them.

The Arts Journalism program at the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism is America’s leading master's program for next generation storytelling. And the place to be. You will have access to people who connect people, shape ideas and define our culture in the maker capital of the world: Los Angeles.

Creative, diverse and dynamic, L.A. is home to the movie industry, the video game industry, the music industry, the entertainment industry, center of America’s visual and graphic arts and home to a vibrant arts scene that celebrates chefs and fashion designers as artists. USC Annenberg is at the center of it.

The program is deeply embedded in Los Angeles’ rich cultural life and emphasizes artistic and creative process. You are encouraged to spend time inside rehearsal rooms, film studios, architectural firms, and in intimate contact with artists, many of them famous and many not, but all with exceptional stories to tell that deserve to be made visible. You will have the freedom to pursue what you are passionate about and the ability to study with award-winning faculty from USC’s six arts schools and the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism.
