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 project will also facilitate lasting connections between an Armenian and American institution of higher education.
