If you are a high school senior looking for a career that will not only give you a living but will help the country, consider enrolling in the A.B. Journalism program of The Manila Times College.  All the graduates so far of this program found employment within two months of their graduation.  Some found part-time employment even while they were still studying.

The program consists of academic training in journalism and practical apprenticeship in The Manila Times.  You will be writing and publishing news, features, special reports, and other types of journalism even while you are still in school.  In addition, you will be handling programs in Teleradyo TMTC even before you graduate.


If you are a sophomore student taking up A.B. Mass Communication or any related field in any college or university, consider doing your apprenticeship with The Manila Times College.  We offer an intensive program guaranteed to make you immediately employable in any major media outlet both in the Philippines and abroad.

The program consists of two summers of full-time training and two years of monitored training; these are the summers before and after your third year and the weekends of your third and fourth years.  Depending on the program that you choose, you will be writing and publishing Special Reports for The Manila Times and/or broadcasting over Teleradyo TMTC while you are still in college.


If you have finished high school, are between 16 to 18 years old, and are not sure if you want to earn an undergraduate degree, consider enrolling in the Junior College of The Manila Times College, meant to train you to get a job in major media outfits.

We offer Grades 11 and 12 of the K-12 program, with particular emphasis on writing skills in either or both English and Filipino, knowledge and experience in newspaper work, and opportunities to see your name in print.


If you are already working in media but lack academic credentials, consider enrolling in the Senior College of The Manila Times College.  We will work within your schedule, without sacrificing academic rigor and course requirements.

Your teachers will be acknowledged veterans in the field who have earned degrees in prestigious schools both in the Philippines and abroad.


If you are a non-Filipino living outside the Philippines but need to spend time doing OJT in a country with one of the most alive media industries in the world, consider enrolling in the Visiting OJT of The Manila Times College.  We offer practical experience in writing, editing, designing, printing, and marketing of a newspaper.  We have a staff of veteran and senior writers and editors, who can help you fulfill the requirements of your university.
