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.

Notice

Thank you for your interest in New Media Journalism. Please note, our New Media Journalism Certificate program will be temporarily suspended beginning April 2019. You are still able to take individual New Media Journalism courses and our goal is to bring the certificate program back once we’ve had the opportunity to envision new approaches that will meet the evolving needs of the market and our students.

Please check back soon for more information. Updates will be shared here.
