Most arts journalism graduate programs are housed within a journalism department. At the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), art journalism is taught within the context of an art academy. Here, you will have access to the thinkers and makers influencing the national and global art worlds. You will also have the opportunity to work closely with artists, art historians, cultural theorists, and art critics connected to a major American museum and explore innovative ways of communicating contemporary culture.

SAIC's Department of New Arts journalism provides you with the necessary skills and experiences to function as an art and design journalist for:

Newspapers
Magazines
Trade journals
Radio
Television
Blogs
Podcasts
Graphic novels

We use the Chicago art scene as a laboratory for our research. The city’s major media and communications center provides you with many options for your required second-year internship, in which you will combine your study of art, design, new media, criticism, and 21st-century arts journalism with practical work. Students are placed with local and global media and class-created publications and contribute to SAIC's award-winning F Newsmagazine and fnewsmagazine.com.
