Back to school 2022
“Faced with technical developments, economic constraints and the legitimate expectations of society, journalists must anchor the practice of their profession in a foundation of solid values. It is up to us to accompany them in the construction of their project, without naivety and with the conviction that the spirit of service, humility and benevolence count just as much as rigour, curiosity and perseverance! »
With a State Master's degree at stake, the IJTM is making a name for itself in the university landscape but also among professionals. More and more companies are soliciting the profiles of its students for work-study positions. In particular the Christian media which are still looking for their apprentices for the start of the 2022 school year.
