Adapting Journalism to the Digital Space
NYU’s Studio 20: Digital First program trains the next generation of change-makers in journalism. Here, you will learn the fundamentals of how to create innovation in digital newsrooms and measure your ideas against real world constraints. Our students learn to plan, design, prototype, test, improve, launch, de-bug and evolve new products and better ways of working so that journalism can regain its vital connection to active publics around the globe, and earn their trust. Graduates are prepared to work across departments in what are today called “bridge roles”— the points where business, editorial, tech, and audience problems converge.
Students in the Studio 20 program benefit from studio-style courses, in which small teams take on improvement projects that are 100 percent real because they come to us from established media companies and digital start-ups that need help with solving problems or seizing new opportunities. The goal is to find solutions and recommend innovations that actually get adopted, and to build the portfolios of students as change-makers.
