Chisinau School of Advanced Journalism The Chisinau School of Advanced Journalism ( was initiated by Independent Journalism Center in Moldova, an institution which for the last 12 years has promoted the development of an independent press, serving the public interest. After having organized hundreds of training-courses of short duration for Moldovan journalists, the staff at the Center decided to create this school.

Every year 20 students will have the opportunity to receive proper training to become professional journalists. During ten months of intense studies, they will be able to make themselves familiar with the standards and working procedures of Western journalism.

Different from ordinary university education, this school has been designed with the idea of putting the student into conditions, similar to that of an actual editorial office. The courses that will be taught – journalism related to radio, television, photography and on-line editing, economy, investigation, legislation and questions of ethics and conduct, mass-media management and others – will be run by known journalists from Moldova, as well as experts and specialists from Western countries. The lecture-program will be followed by a four weeks - internship where every student will have the chance to work at a recognized media institution.

At the graduation the students will receive certificates signed by our main partners; School of Journalism at Missouri University, The Paris-based Journalism School and Training Center.
