The U.S. Department of State, U.S. Embassy Yerevan announces an open competition for a cooperative agreement for a U.S. university, housing a journalism school of international stature, and an Armenian university, to establish a university partnership to create a Master of Arts (MA) degree program in Journalism and a Center for Excellence (CEJ) in Journalism in Armenia.

The initiative will advance the Embassy’s goal of bolstering the ability of independent media in Armenia to effectively inform the public, counter misinformation, and advance shared democratic values by building a pipeline of professionally trained journalists capable of producing quality journalism. 

The proposal to create a Center of Excellence in Journalism and graduate degree program in Armenia through a U.S.-Armenian university partnership will fill a gap in providing much needed journalism training at the graduate level, as well as serve as a hub for journalism leadership, best practices, research, support, and training for working journalists to serve as a bulwark against misinformation.
