The Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism is one of the professional graduate schools of Columbia University. Located in the Morningside Heights neighborhood of New York City, it is the only journalism school in the Ivy League and one of the oldest in the United States and the world. The school was founded by Joseph Pulitzer in 1912, and offers Master of Science and Master of Arts degrees in journalism as well as a Ph.D. in communications.
In addition to graduate degree programs, the Journalism School houses the Pulitzer Prizes and administers several prizes, including the Alfred I. duPont–Columbia University Award. It also co-sponsors the National Magazine Awards and publishes the ''Columbia Journalism Review'', essentially a trade publication for journalists.
A faculty of experienced journalists with varying specialties—including politics, arts and culture, religion, science, education, business and economics, investigative reporting, national and international affairs—instruct Journalism School students. Faculty members are preeminent in their fields, and many have won numerous journalism awards including the Pulitzer Prize, the Guggenheim Fellowship, the duPont-Columbia Award, the National Magazine Award, and the National Book Award.
The Journalism School was founded with a bequest from Joseph Pulitzer. In 1892, Pulitzer offered Columbia University's president, Seth Low, money to set up the world's first school of journalism. The university initially turned down the money. Low's successor, Nicholas Murray Butler was more receptive to the plan, however.〔James Boylan, ''(Pulitzer's School: Columbia University's School of Journalism )''. Columbia University Press (2003). pgs. 3-10, 13-16.〕
It took the university many years to act on Pulitzer's $2 million gift and pitch for a journalism school. Classes began on September 30, 1912, with a student body of about 100 undergraduate and graduate students from 21 countries. The building was still under construction at the time.
In 1935 Dean Carl Ackerman led the school's transition to become the first graduate school of journalism in the United States. Classes of 60 students dug up stories in New York City during the day and drafted articles in a single, large newsroom in the journalism school at night.〔
