Created through a collaboration between Northeastern University’s School of Journalism and School of Law, the Media Advocacy Program combines foundations in governmental structures and the legal system with sophisticated training in the latest communications techniques. We study and practice strategic communication for the purpose of creating social and policy change. Our tools include social media, web communications and videography, as well as data analytics and data-driven storytelling. Graduate students and faculty are part of a campus network connected to a variety of labs and projects. The program connects with many Boston-area nonprofit and governmental organizations to help with media capacity, and graduate students often serve as research assistants with relevant projects across campus that want strategic media help.
