How to Apply
We welcome applications from curious, passionate and skeptical people who want to produce accurate, hard-hitting stories about community health, trends in health care, personal health, health disparities, medical education, scientific research and health care systems in the United States and around the world. Strong research and writing ability — or the willingness to learn — is essential.
Admission preference is not given to any particular major, although we strongly encourage students with a Bachelors degree or higher in science, public health, liberal arts or journalism to apply.
To be considered for the Health and Medical Journalism Master's Program, you must apply online through the University of Georgia's Graduate School web site and supply additional materials required by Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication.
