Announcing a part time PGCert in Data Journalism

This post was originally published on this site


 

Earlier this year I announced a new MA in Data Journalism. Now I am announcing a version of the course for those who wish to study a shorter, part time version of the course.

The PGCert in Data Journalism takes place over 8 months and includes 3 modules from the full MA:

  • Data Journalism;
  • Law, Regulation and Institutions (including security); and
  • Specialist Journalism, Investigations and Coding

The modules develop both a broad understanding of a range of data journalism techniques before you choose to develop some of those in greater depth on a specialist project.

The course is designed for those working in industry who wish to gain accredited skills in data journalism, but who cannot take time out to study full time or may not want a full Masters degree (a PGCert is 60 credits towards the 180 credits needed for a full MA).

Students on the PGCert can also apply to work with partner organisations including The Telegraph and Haymarket brands.

If you want to know more about the PGCert you can contact me on Twitter @paulbradshaw or on email paul.bradshaw@bcu.ac.uk.
