In the past few years, journalism has undergone a major transformation. Journalism is now mediated by digital technologies, leading to new practices, business models, and journalistic norms. Specific skills for digital journalism include data journalism, solutions journalism, and strategic digital communications. Today’s journalists need to fill diverse roles, requiring not only an agile understanding of emerging social trends but also specialized expertise.
