The Journalism Minor at City College is in the process of becoming a major concentration for a B.A. in Communications. We will also continue to offer it as a minor.

We offer the NBCU Academy Fellows Program in partnership with the Colin Powell School for Civic and Global Studies



The NBCU Academy Fellows Program is designed to educate and support outstanding students who are on a path to become leaders, journalists, and content creators. Fellows will participate in intensive mentoring, professional development, and paid internships, opportunities provided to fellows by the faculty and staff of CCNY with generous financial support from NBCUniversal News Group.



Fellows will each receive $5,000 stipends during the school year and up to $5,000 to support journalism internships during the summer.

The fellowship is made possible by a partnership among the NBCUniversal News Group, NBCU Academy, the Colin Powell School, and the Journalism Program and the Department of Media and Communication Arts in CCNY’s Division of Humanities and Arts.


Fellows are required to take two credit-bearing journalism classes during the 2022-2023 school year and participate in monthly fellows workshops. These courses, taught by CCNY instructors, will complement and build on each other.


By the end of the year-long experience, fellows will have learned the foundational skills of journalism; acquired a deeper understanding of the media landscape and of media and news literacy; delved into key theoretical issues and debates in journalism; mastered the core skills of producing television stories for broadcast and digital; learned the nuts and bolts of data analysis and visualization; studied methods to build an audience; and enjoyed extensive mentoring and direct professional experience.




    Applicants to the NBCU Academy Fellows Program must be undergraduate students who are interested in pursuing careers as journalists and who are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in the news media.

    We welcome applications from students in all CCNY schools and divisions. Students must be enrolled full- time at CCNY during the 2023 school year, have at least 48 credits by the beginning of Fall 2023, have at least a 2.8 GPA at the time that they apply, and plan to graduate in May 2024 or later. Applicants must be available to participate in two required classes during the 2023-2024 school year (one each semester), public events that are associated with this program, and full-time journalism/media internships during the summer. 




    Completed applications must include the following:

    • This applicant information form;
    • Responses to the four questions;
    • A resume; and
    • A transcript (can be the unofficial version from CUNYfirst).


    All applications must be emailed to the Colin Powell School Office of Fellowships at  deadline TBA. Please submit all your materials in one email. We will confirm that we have received your application two to four weeks after submission.
