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).
