The University of California Berkeley offers a fully funded Master of Journalism. The Master of Journalism degree is immersive, rigorous, and demanding – it requires a two-year commitment because it takes two years to master the craft, fully engage in the culture of journalism, and absorb the skills of storytelling. These include narrative writing, radio, photography, broadcast and online video production, multimedia storytelling, and data- and investigative-based journalism. All students admitted to the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism will be considered for merit-based funding. About 40 percent of students receive some sort of departmental funding. Funding packages range from about $5,000 to $20,000 per year.
