The Bilingual Journalism program is offered by University of Arizona.

The master’s degree in Bilingual Journalism is a cutting-edge program that offers professional and academic training for students who want to report about and/or for Latinx communities in the United States and abroad.

It is one of the only fully bilingual programs in the country. Graduates will acquire a robust set of skills in both Spanish and English that will translate into a significant competitive edge in the workplace.

What Can This Program Offer You?

Fully Bilingual Program. This is one of the only M.A. programs of its kind in the country. Graduates will gain strong skills in both English and Spanish, which will give them a competitive edge in the workplace.
Comprehensive Understanding of Latinx Communities. This two-year master’s degree will advance students’ understanding of the history and culture of Latinx, Mexican American and other bilingual populations in the United States and Latin America.

Cultural Competency. The program goes beyond teaching how to report on Latinx issues in two languages by offering courses about historical, social, cultural, geographic and political issues relevant to Latinx communities in Arizona, the U.S.-Mexico borderlands and the Latin American countries where many U.S. immigrants originated.
Welcoming School Culture. Our program is small, with a strong camaraderie and frequent opportunities to interact with other graduate students. You’ll receive personal attention from faculty and staff during your time studying with us.

The School of Journalism’s mission is to prepare students to face the complex challenges confronting journalists in the 21st century. In the school’s computer laboratories and seminar rooms, students work on stories that appear in real-world news media, and study the political, economic, legal and ethical issues that journalists face in the global information age.

“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”​
