News web sites too often turn to formulaic digital storytelling, but here at the Newmark Graduate School of Journalism, we train students to use computer programming to convey the news in unique and customized ways.
Nearly all students arrive at school with no prior programming experience. Over three semester, however, they acquire the necessary skills to find themselves at the exciting intersection of coding, information design and customized narratives.
We swim in a world of data – from election results, budgets, and census reports, to Facebook updates and image and video uploads. Journalists need to know how to find stories in data and shape them in compelling ways. It’s good storytelling and it’s good business as legacy media and startup news organizations are actively hiring data storytellers.
At the Newmark Graduate School of Journalism, students can specialize in data journalism by taking electives that teach you how to gather and analyze data to find stories and to visualize them as interactive narratives. If you complete the series of progressively more complex electives, you will be well-positioned to succeed in this fast-growing discipline which is at the crossroads of storytelling, statistical analysis and interactive design.
