UNICORN program at Columbia University
The new term in journalism, which expresses the extreme rarity, is “Unicorns”. Storytellers, who understand and exploit the technology and possibilities of journalism.
In order to secure the future of this “Unicorns”, appropriate training has been included in the new program at Columbia University. The Columbia starts with it worldwide as a pioneer: a kind of post-baccalaureate program to teach students computer science concepts in the context of journalistic practice – before they can enroll in further graduate education.
An essential approach we maintain as the guiding principle of our work and finally finding its way into training.
