Nieman Journalism Lab
Pushing to the future of journalism — A project of the Nieman Foundation at Harvard

Launching this fall, it’ll aim at building reporting skills distinct from platform skills.

So what does this mean for our students? It means you’ll be learning multimedia skills, producing your own websites and creating your own digital portfolio from the day you enter the school…We’re eliminating the old walls between print, magazine, photojournalism, multimedia and broadcast, and we’ll be emphasizing good writing and critical thinking from Day One.
