Fall Registration Open; Journalism Program Sets Course Schedule

UPDATE — Fall course registration is now open. Be sure to check out the wide range of electives below, including a new Media Ethics course. And remember that some elective courses, such as Neighborhood News, may be taken more than once.

Hunter College students will begin registering for fall 2020 classes on Monday, May 5, and those interested in journalism courses have nearly a dozen to choose from, including electives like news video, podcasting, data journalism and magazine writing.


Hunter College and CUNY have not yet announced whether fall classes will be conducted through remote learning. But in his latest announcement regarding CUNY’s response to the coronavirus crisis, CUNY Chancellor Félix V. Matos Rodríguez wrote on April 20 that, “Direction regarding the format of course offerings for Fall 2020 will be provided in the future depending on the COVID-19 emergency time frame, and once consultation with academic leaders and faculty has occurred and direction from NYSED and other accrediting bodies has been received.”

Here’s a look at the preliminary Journalism Program course schedule:
