The University of Applied Sciences in Utrecht with its School of Journalism (SvJ) is the oldest school in journalism in Holland, as well as in Europe.
Since 1966, the study program of the School has combined a sound understanding of society with intense practical training and internships in journalism both national and international. The Utrecht School of Journalism has a new curriculum since 2016 that fully incorporates modern multimedia journalism through practice-based learning from year one. The School also highlights doing journalistic research, storytelling and entrepreneurship. An understanding of national, international, political, historical contexts play a central role.
The new building (we moved in during Sept. 2018) includes a state-of-the-art television studio with edit and many radio edit rooms modelled after real-life newsrooms.
