J225 Datify Your Captstone Project

This course starts on Tuesday Oct. 22 and will run 7 weeks long.

Every journalism story has a data angle to be uncovered.  And every student working on a master’s capstone project could use support on data topics. 

This is a seven-week graduate-level seminar course designed for journalism graduate students to learn how to find, acquire, clean, sort, parse, and visualize data for their master’s capstone projects. The course will include some foundational lessons that apply to all stories, and then delve into specific projects students are working on in order to teach them how to communicate their stories in a compelling and convincing way. The group environment of this course allows students to gain insight on how certain techniques used by others might also apply to their work. While this is primarily a seminar course, this course may also include a blend of lectures and hands-on workshops to deliver instruction as applicable to their projects.
