New Media Journalism

Take a new approach to digital storytelling

Journalism has changed. We still want to know what’s happening around us and why it matters—but instead of opening the paper or watching the news, we turn to YouTube, Twitter, Instagram or the latest blog.

New technology has made journalists of everyone. Some coverage is worth our time, and some isn’t. Good new media reporting is compelling, current and cross-platform.

Grad Alan shares how the program helped him make industry connections and stay on top of industry trends.
