JOUR13-320: Digital Journalism


This project-based subject explores the ways in which technology is changing journalism, and its impact on how news is gathered, presented and consumed. The subject looks at established and emerging technologies and analyses how they are being applied in an industry that is constantly evolving and reshaping itself to meet consumer needs. Students will harness these technologies for themselves to create compelling digital narratives – across platforms, formats and media – in which the story (and user) are central.
