The Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication is recognized as one of the premier immersive professional journalism programs in the United States. Home to Cronkite News and Arizona PBS, the school also administers one of only two Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship programs in journalism in the U.S. The State Department program, in partnership with the Institute of International Education, brings 10 to 15 mid-career journalists and professional communicators from developing countries to the Cronkite School each year for 10 months.
Staffed by leading journalists and award-winning faculty members, the school also hosts emerging international journalists through the Edward R. Murrow Program for Journalists. Named in honor of the famed CBS broadcast journalist, the State Department program brings fellows from around the world to the U.S. to study journalistic principles and practices.
Other major international initiatives include Cronkite study abroad programs, overseas faculty research projects and invited scholars and professionals in residence.
