I learned a lot in this course. The professors are very clear and their explanations are easy to understand. I don't think that, after this course, I am able to write a professional report or anything like that, but I did gain quite a few basic concepts of journalism and am able to write better now than I did before. Recommend this!

The course gave me some valuable background and context about the field of journalism. I'm happy with my day job, for now, yet hope to develop a sideline or second career in journalism, specializing in writing about the environment, science, and bioethics. In the process of completing the course, I developed some ideas for stories that I can

Great specialisation. It has been designed mainly for people who desire to become a professional journalism. This specialisation degree offers valuable journalistic techniques to write concise articles, not only that, but how to gather information in an ethical way.

As a guest writer for over 2 years and writing 70+ articles, with no prior formal training, I found this to be very refreshing to understand key concepts of journalism, especially on fairness, accuracy to promote credibility.

This is a good course for those who not only beginners but people who written before and want to hone their values and concepts in journalism.
