College of Communication > Academics > Journalism > Graduate Program > Journalism (MA) > Data Journalism Concentration
The concentration in Data Journalism at DePaul focuses on reporting stories through data and non-linear storytelling. It enables students to cover many of our major social problems—crime, poverty, access to health care, homelessness, and various forms of abuse—through social science reporting, data mining and visualization. The concentration's objectives are to find and report important stories by integrating classic journalistic values of fairness, balance and impartiality with the values of digitalization and open-source culture. Graduates will be prepared to find jobs in the rapidly growing marketplace of publications that combine journalism and cutting-edge technology. Students must take two core courses (8 credits) and two elective courses (8 credits).
