Official Master's Degree in Journalism and Digital Content Innovation


The UAB Master's Degree in Journalism and Innovation in Digital Contents responds to the needs in technological innovation of journalism and communication firms immersed in the information society. The changes generated by the introduction of internet into the flow and management of information and the ever increasingly successful insertion of production devices for daily life contents in communication media have given way to numerous studies on the use of technological tools by journalists, especially for online contents, on the role of new processes of creating information when writing news, on the business model of newspaper firms and on the positioning of new journalistic products on the market.

These challenges require a process of training for new professionals who, based on their acquired knowledge, practical skills and research into the advances, technologies and challenges facing communicative environments, are capable of meeting the demands of this new media ecosystem.

After completing the research phase on the structurisation of news writing and the adaptation of traditional messages to the world of the internet, the master'sdegreein Journalism and Innovation in Digital Contents will open a hands-on training period related to the process of producing and managing contents, innovation in the generation of contents for different platforms and the need to position an information product within a globalised, ever-changing and and modular world.
