Columbia University
NAJP is based at Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, in collaboration with Columbia's School of the Arts. The program's linkages extend beyond the boundaries of the university to New York's vibrant arts community and rich array of cultural institutions.

Established in 1754, Columbia University is among the preeminent centers of learning and research in the world. With 15 schools, 69 academic departments and divisions, a distinguished faculty of over 7,200 and 6,300 courses covering all arts and sciences, Columbia offers unparalleled learning opportunities. Fellows take advantage of seminar and lecture courses in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, as well as specialized and interdisciplinary programs in journalism, the arts, architecture, business and law. Columbia's libraries provide access to almost 7 million printed volumes.

The Graduate School of Journalism
Since 1912, the Graduate School of Journalism has ranked among the nation's leading institutions of journalism education. The school offers specialized courses in criticism, cultural reporting, magazine and book writing, law, communications research and new media taught by outstanding scholars and professionals.

The school's influence is felt far beyond the campus. The Columbia Journalism Review challenges the national media to improve their performance. Prizes administered by the school include the Pulitzer Prizes, the National Magazine Awards, the Maria Moors Cabot Prizes, and the Alfred I. DuPont-Columbia University Awards in electronic journalism.

At the Journalism School, the NAJP joins the Knight-Bagehot Fellowship Program in Economics and Business Journalism and the Certificate in Advanced International Reporting Program in providing continuing education for specialized journalists.

The School of the Arts
NAJP is also linked to Columbia's School of the Arts, which offers graduate degree programs in film, theater arts, visual arts, writing and music. The School of the Arts makes New York a virtual classroom, connecting the university to the Metropolitan Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim and Whitney museums, P.S. 1, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Public Theater, La MaMa, Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and Columbia's own Miller Theatre; as well as to a hundred galleries and a thousand lofts.

The School of the Arts helps fellows secure spots in selected lecture, laboratory and workshop courses, and in on- and off-campus practica. It works with the NAJP as well in conceptualizing conferences and symposia, and in engaging resident and visiting artists, and managers of arts and cultural organizations, for informal discussions with NAJP fellows.
