Applications for MA Journalism due 31 August

MANILA, June 2 --- The Ateneo de Manila University is now accepting
applications for second term admission to the Master of Arts in
Journalism, a distance learning program for working journalists run by
the Konrad Adenauer Asian Center for Journalism at the Ateneo (ACFJ).
Deadline is on Thursday, 31 August; classes begin in November.

The master's program stands out among similar programs in Asia with its
use of online learning methods which makes it convenient for working
journalists and other media professionals to follow the courses from
their own homes and workplaces. Ten of the 13 courses comprising the
program are taught using online learning methods.

Moreover, the online learning platform has given the program an
international character. Since its inception in 2003 the program has
attracted journalists - from reporters to senior editors - from 11
Asian countries as well as those from countries outside the region. The
program's faculty likewise comes from various parts of Asia, North
America, Australia and Europe.

The master's program is the flagship program of ACFJ, a joint project
the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS) and the Ateneo. ACFJ also offers
non-degree courses including the Diploma in Radio Journalism and a
of certificate courses. Jointly with the world-renowned World Press
Foundation, ACFJ will launch another new program late this year, the
Diploma in Photojournalism designed for working photojournalists.

Application forms to the graduate program may be requested by e-mail at and are also available from the Ateneo's Office of
Graduate Studies (OGS). For its non-degree programs, ACFJ may be
