Journalism School Partnership Program

The University of South Carolina’s School of Journalism and Mass Communications in Columbia, South Carolina, is now partners with the Caucasus School of Journalism and Media Management at the Georgian Institute of Public Affairs in Tbilisi, Georgia.

Funded by a $742,000 grant from the U.S. Department of State, the two schools are participating in a three-year partnership program to improve the standard of journalism instruction and to assist in the institutional development of CSJMM. The partnership is designed to assist CSJMM to increase its capacity to deliver programs of the highest international quality for instruction and research in journalism. By training future journalists and media practitioners, CSJMM will play a critical role in setting the standards and providing the necessary skills to develop and maintain independent media in the Caucasus region. Such independent media should then play a critical role in ensuring the free flow of information necessary to maintain democratic systems of government.
