Communication processes have had to adapt to a technological evolution that is unprecedented in history. Journalism, as an essential discipline in a social and democratic environment, requires constant updating in the use and mastery of digital tools.
The new ways of preparing and consuming information require professionals capable of handling a large number of digital tools and analyzing an ever-increasing volume of information. Essential proposals for Communication companies such as Data Journalism, 360º projects or Immersive Journalism have been implemented in recent years in the media and are elements that are generating new job opportunities.
Through this program, students master the process of planning, creating, and designing content for digital media and learn to be journalists in this field where printed press, radio, and television converge.
Nebrija University offers the Master's Degree in Digital and Data Journalism, where students prepare to be a writer in the field of digital communication, data journalist, editor and manager of online content, entrepreneur of new media and 360º projects, journalist specialized in data management and visualization, community manager or, among other outlets, audience analyst in digital media.Read more

It is an essential requirement to access the Master's programs to have a Bachelor's degree or equivalent in accordance with the current legislation. A Bachelor's Degree in Communication Sciences (Journalism, Audiovisual Communication, Advertising and Public Relations) will be especially valued. In this sense, we are looking for students who have skills that foresee a good disposition for teamwork, have great flexibility and open-mindedness to the incorporation of new knowledge and new ways of working, and that, regardless of what scientific or technical studies they come from, they show a great interest in the humanities in general, and a great sense of social responsibility in professional work.
The admission process to the Master's degree begins by sending the following documentation by post or courier to the Postgraduate Admissions Section:
Once the documentation has been received and it has been verified that the diploma submitted grants to the degree, as established in Arts. 15 and 16 of Royal Decree 1393/2007, candidates take the admission test with the coordinator of the degree. This test is carried out in person in Madrid when possible or, failing that, it can also be taken remotely (online) for those candidates residing outside of Spain.
The candidate holds a personal interview with the Program Coordinator. This interview is in itself an admission test in which the specific knowledge of the candidate is evaluated through a battery of questions about the area of knowledge, as well as their level of maturity and attitudes to it. After this interview, the coordinator prepares a report on the candidate's skills profile, his degree of maturity, his personal interest in Audiovisual Journalism and his suitability for the degree, which is attached to the file that the Admissions Commission will assess.
The University Admissions Commission, made up of heads of the Department itself, the General Secretary and the Department of University Development will be in charge of proposing to the Rector of the University the granting of student status to those candidates whose suitability has been proven.
The candidate receives written information about their admission, which is previously provided by phone, about the result of the admission process and formalizing their enrollment in the Program, the definitive documentation, duly legalized, that must be submitted, etc.
The faculty of the School of Communication and Arts is made up of professionals from each field of specialization, who develop a teaching method based on the conviction that what we learn, we learn by doing it.
Integration into the profession is based on the incorporation of professionals such as associate professors who guarantee each program, on a teaching methodology inspired by the learning-by-doing model that impacts the experiential aspect in the classrooms and in the activities of academic extension.
