Program

Journalism + Multimedia Specialization

  • Bilingual training in electronic and digital media
  • Digital video-editing and multimedia production
  • Investigative journalism and data management
  • Internships in radio, television, print and digital journalism in local, national and international media

This is a one-of-a-kind program offered in Spanish, but it is also bilingual. You can choose to present your projects in Spanish or English. If you study the Latin American and Caribbean Studies specialization, those lectures are in English. That is also the case for the elective courses. That is why the TOEFL exam is required.

The program, designed to start in the Fall, may be completed in one year and consists of 36 credits (12 courses of three credits each). Two electives courses can be taken outside of the School of Communication + Journalism (SCJ). Each course is offered once a year in the semester as indicated in the link below, except for the Final Professional Project, which is offered in the Fall, Spring and Summer terms.

Latin American + Caribbean Studies Specialization

If you are interested in covering bilingual Latin American and Caribbean issues, this program is for you.

You will have the opportunity to specialize in areas of political science, sociology and anthropology. This interdisciplinary program will enable students to delve into the political and historical Latin American and Caribbean context of the stories they will cover as reporters.

Four courses are offered in English through FIU’s Kimberly Green Latin American and Caribbean Center (LACC) and eight courses are offered in Spanish by the SCJ faculty.

The program consists of 36 credits (12 courses of three credits each). The professional project can be completed in Spanish or English, and it will be supervised and graded by faculty members of SCJ’s Spanish-Language Journalism Master’s Program.
