The UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism is a graduate professional school on the campus of University of California, Berkeley. It is among the top graduate journalism schools in the United States, and is designed to produce journalists with a two-year Master of Journalism (MJ) degree. It also offers a summer minor in journalism to undergraduates and a journalism certificate option to non-UC Berkeley students.[3]

The school is located in North Gate Hall on the central campus of UC Berkeley. It is being served by dean Geeta Anand, who replaced Edward Wasserman on July 1, 2020 as an interim dean, and then was formally appointed as permanent dean on Oct 21, 2020. [4] Wasserman voluntarily stepped down six months before his expected departure in response to criticism by students about the lack of diversity in the administration.[5]

Most courses offered by the school are on the graduate level, with a summer-only minor offered to undergraduates. The school enrolls approximately 120 students; 60 first-year and 60-second-year students, and is among the smaller graduate schools on the campus of UC Berkeley.

The school serves host to, or sponsors, a number of events. Notable speakers from around the world have shared their insights on current events in the media. Recent speakers have included Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Robert McNamara, Hans Blix, George Soros, Cokie Roberts, Paul Krugman, Dan Rather, Bob Woodruff, Ira Glass and Robert Krulwich.[6]
