Data Journalism

Course Details

We swim in a world of data – from election results, budgets, and census reports, to Facebook updates and image uploads. Journalists need to know how to find stories in data and shape them in compelling ways. This course teaches students to gather, analyze, and visualize interactive data-driven stories. This emerging discipline touches on information and interactivity design, mapping, graphing, animation tools, and data analysis.
