The mission of The School of Journalism, Writing, and Media is to achieve the highest professional standards in journalism through instruction in journalistic practice and the scholarly understanding of journalism, critical thinking, and teaching of ethical responsibility. The School is part of the Faculty of Arts, but is governed by the admissions and curriculum requirements of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies. It offers a two-year Master of Journalism (M.J.).

The School opened in 1998 and is housed in a new building with seminar and work rooms, with faculty and administration offices arranged around a state-of-the-art newsroom. Its construction was made possible by an endowment from the Sing Tao Foundation.
