About Jordan Media Institute

Jordan Media Institute is a non-profit educational institution founded by Her Royal Highness Princess Rym Ali to enhance the performance of journalists and media practitioners in Jordan and the region. The institute, which provides professional education and training opportunities, offers its programs in Arabic in order to raise the level of Arab media and provide foreign media outlets with professional Arabic-speaking journalists.

JMI also seeks to improve media output and build the reputation of the profession locally and across the Arab world through its Master’s in Journalism and New Media.

The MA degree consists of two tracks: the Comprehensive Examination Track, designed to produce professional journalists with advanced print and digital media skills; and the Thesis Track, which focuses on developing research and writing skills, in addition to establishing ethical and creative standards for the profession among students.

The Master’s program adheres to high-quality standards in journalism education and is based on a balance between theoretical and practical instruction, in addition to the integration of communications technology with digital applications.

JMI is the first Arab educational institution to develop its journalism curricula by benefiting from elements of the digital environment, as well as focusing on building a strong cultural knowledge base among its students.
