MA in Data Journalism, Tilburg University, the Netherlands (12 months)

The developments of the internet have given database journalism a new  
definition, according to which it defines a process where the database  
becomes the center of the journalistic work (as opposed to the story  
in traditional journalism). It slowly evolved in data journalism; a  
journalistic process based on analyzing and filtering large data sets  
for the purpose of creating a new story.

This new international master explores the opportunities of data  
journalism from four angles: data retrieval, data storytelling, data  
visualization and data publishing. It combines the scientific methods  
of data treatment with the core values of journalism: select, arrange,  
digest and reflect. The master track puts strong focus on online and  
social media based journalism.

The master track Data Journalism (DJ) has a natural connection with  
Human Aspects of Information Technology (HAIT) and Communication  
Design (CD). Embedded in the strong Communication and Information  
Sciences program, Tilburg University believes to launch a unique  
master in which a student learns how to transfer information and how  
new means of communication can be used.
