Program description

Creative Publishing and Critical Journalism

Creative Publishing and Critical Journalism (MA)

The MA Program in Creative Publishing and Critical Journalism (CPCJ) trains students in the traditions of criticism, theory, and critical writing. It offers a variety of studio courses and working experiences that teach students the skills necessary to design, edit, and distribute journals and books that contain intellectually serious work aimed at general readers.

In addition to surveying traditional forms of book and magazine publishing, the program explores the possibilities of new media, placing an emphasis on unorthodox and forward-looking forms such as print-on-demand, small-batch publications, independent press publishing, art books, data journalism, conceptual programming, multimedia, and more.

What distinguishes CPCJ from traditional journalism programs is its emphasis on design, its focus on a wide variety of contemporary print and digital publishing practices, and its stress on cultural criticism, long-form creative nonfiction, and reflective writing that is deeply informed by rigorous critical theory and research.
