Universities and schools

The largest training school in Guatemala is at the state university, Universidad San Carlos. Its School of Communication Sciences offers technical degrees in journalism, locution or advertising (3 years each) and a degree in Communication Sciences (two more years). Although it is the largest school, the lack of state investment means that students do not have updated and modern equipment to practice journalism. The career of journalism can also be found in most private universities, all with a duration of five years with different specialisations.

Currently, there are other 4 accredited institutions where it is possible to study journalism in Guatemala: Universidad Rafael Landívar, Universidad del Istmo, Universidad Galileo, and Universidad Mariano Gálvez.
