  • EJCAM - 21 Rue Virgile Marron, 13005 Marseille
  • Objectives

    The Master's degree in Journalism aims to train future journalists capable of being rapidly operational in the media sector (radio, TV, web, print media). It is recognized by the Commission Paritaire Nationale pour l'Emploi des Journalistes (CPNEJ), which guarantees the excellence of the training and the employability of the students. It is also one of only three courses in France offering a two-year work-study course in public masters programs.

  • Organization of the work-study Master's program

    Students follow a specific schedule that alternates between periods at EJCAM and periods in newsroom.

    Students begin with an intensive week of classes, then the rhythm varies between one to two weeks of classes every four to six weeks (see Calendar). In the first year, EJCAM offers 428 hours (including 314 hours of practice). In the second year, 402 hours are taught (including 311 hours of practical work).

    The first year is dedicated to the acquisition of the basics (handling of radio and TV equipment, writing, oral fluency...). The second year is the year of improvement: students choose the specialty of their choice between radio and television, subject to validation by the teaching team.

    The working periods can take place in radio, television, print and web.

  • Which students? Which jobs?

    The training program includes lectures and theoretical classes as well as practical work. Students are trained to design written, audio, video or web productions but also to develop their knowledge of the media and their environment. This program prepares students for jobs such as:

    • Print journalist (freelance journalist; columnist or specialized journalist; editorial secretary; editor-in-chief; section editor)
    • TV journalist (freelance journalist; editor; image reporter; TV columnist; editor; presenter; editor-in-chief)
    • Radio journalist (freelance journalist; radio reporter; radio columnist; editor; news presenter; editor-in-chief)
    • Web journalist
    • Audiovisual production manager
  • Admission requirements

    Access to the Master's degree in Journalism is by competitive examination, open to all persons holding a Bachelor's degree or an equivalent title, without age limit at the time of registration.

    This entrance exam is held in two phases.

    In the first stage, the application form is completed online and is composed of:

    • An identity document;
    • A detailed CV listing the courses taken since obtaining the baccalaureate, any experience (professional, internship, associative life, etc.) and mentioning any publications of the candidate, ideally with the associated URLs (publications on professional media but also on media managed by the candidate);
    • A two to three pages cover letter justifying the choice of applying to the EJCAM Master of Journalism program;
    • A 2,000 written caracters by the student presenting his/her vision of his/her career path, upon leaving the school and then at 5, 10, 20 years, etc;
