NYU: M.A. in science, health & environmental reporting


The Science, Health & Environmental Reporting program (SHERP) at NYU consists of 11 classes (including one elective) over 16 months, for a total of 38 credits. SHERP classwork is centered on real-world reporting assignments and extensive interactions with leading practitioners in journalism and science. In addition to regular classes, students take multimedia storytelling via two intensive, eight-week workshops: audio in the first semester and video in the spring. In addition to the master's program, NYU offers workshops for STEM grad students and working journalists.
