While telling stories with data has been part of the news practice since its earliest days, it is in the midst of a renaissance. Graphics desks which used to be deemed as “the art department,” a subfield outside the work of newsrooms, are becoming a core part of newsrooms’ operation. Those people (they often have various titles: data journalists, news artists, graphic reporters, developers, etc.) who design news graphics are expected to be full-fledged journalists and work closely with reporters and editors. The purpose of this class is to learn how to think about the visual presentation of data, how and why it works, and how to doit the right way. We will learn how to make graphs like The New York Times, Vox, Pew, and FiveThirtyEight. In the end, you can share–embed your beautiful charts in publications, blog posts, and websites.

Took this class for my job which requires lots of data visualization. Enjoy the classes a lot and learn so so much from it! The slides are easy to follow and very attractive to learn.
Comprehensive course to helping us how to use data for journalism as well as will help us in understanding data in newspapers.
Well organised and with a lot of commitment from the faculty. I would like to see deeper discussions on most of the topic in the future. Thank you
The course can be bit more interesting with some suspense and current trending scenarios
