The CUNY Journalism Press is the academic publishing arm of the City of New York Graduate School of Journalism. The Press was launched in the autumn of 2012 with the mission of publishing serious books about journalism and the news media – history, theory, criticism, craft, memoir and more. The Press is organized, in conjunction with the independent publishing house OR Books, as a new model for publishing – some call it co-publishing – in response to changes in the publishing marketplace and publishing technology. Our aim is to publish books by, for and about journalists that might not otherwise be published in the commercial marketplace.
The CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, the only public graduate school of journalism in the Northeast, opened its doors in 2006 under Dean Stephen Shepard, formerly the editor of Business Week. Widely known for its emphasis on multimedia, interactive and cross-platform reporting and storytelling, the school’s intensive three-semester program offers a Master of Arts in Journalism. The school is also known for its innovative training in emerging technology and for its Tow-Knight Center for Entrepreneurial Journalism, dedicated to finding new business models. The school is the first in the world to offer an M.A. in Entrepreneurial Journalism.
