Today journalism is in the midst of a revolution in the way news is covered and will be covered in the future. It is driven predominantly by two factors: technology and economics. A single individual—the digital journalist, is gradually replacing the traditional “teams” of professionals that were formally used to cover a story. Digital cameras and laptop editing are making this former model of news coverage obsolete. The digital journalist is emerging as the model of the future. DMJ students will focus on this emerging new concept and be ready to enter the workforce. Throughout the program students will develop the technical, editorial and theoretical skills necessary for preparation as a digital journalist. Emphasis will be placed on research, writing, ethics, interviewing, reporting, recording video and audio, editing and producing. The digital journalist must not only master all of these skills, but also be prepared to work in all of the emerging formats of “new media.” Hands on classes will guide students through distinct photo and video projects that will incorporate all of the necessary skills required of the digital journalist. .pdf

Vision Project has created a series of study abroad workshops in affiliation with Sacred Heart University. These workshops are designed to give the student an opportunity to explore the culture, place and people we visit using digital photography. The programs will help students develop the skills, discipline and insights necessary to create documentary productions. At the same time, participants will submerse themselves in the culture of the places we visit. We could not create a better situation for the student to begin to understand the workings of a real documentary assignment.
