What we are
The School of Advanced Journalism (SAJ) was launched in September 2006, and it is an important project of the Independent Journalism Center (IJC).

Today, in a world and age when the media are a click away from everyone, the SAJ offers equal opportunities for all those who want to build a successful career in journalism and communication, as well as to those to wish to gain journalistic skills.
Who the SAJ students are
To become one of the 20 students in the 12th graduate class (2017-2018), you only need to have higher education. You can be a graduate from a university department of law, economy, philology, technology, medicine, journalism, communications and, why not, theatre and fine arts.
