The two-year Master in Journalism “Giorgio Bocca” of the University of Turin has recently ended. The Master, among the 11 accredited Journalism schools in Italy, started in 2004 from the initiative of the Ordine dei Giornalisti (Italian Order of Journalists), and is the main reference for students in Piedmont, Aosta Valley and Liguria who want to become professional journalists.
The activities included in the Master, highly educational and professional, are held in collaboration with a professional Order. That’s why the Master replaces the two-year traineeship provided for by the law to take the State exam and obtain the professional qualification. There will be internships and collaborations with important daily newspapers, such as La Stampa and La Repubblica, as well.
The 20 students who were selected in the 2016 call have finished a program which trained them on the different types of journalism: data-journalism, immersive journalism, fact-checking and debunking. A programme oriented to multimedia and innovation, with social media managing and brand-journalism workshops. This video relates the programme that recently ended.
Now that a generation has done its course, the Master re-opens selections for 2018-2020.

You can apply until July 23.
