European Federation of Journalists Master Class on Digital Journalism and Ethics will hold a EU Master Class on Digital Journalism focusing on digital ethics and digital empowerment of young journalists and students of the profession.

The curriculum includes training on digital security, data journalism, AI in journalism and ethical standards in online news. These sessions will be led by international experts who will guide the participants to analyse the ethical standards of journalistic materials from the view of press councils. This will allow participants to discover how press councils work and the critical questions upon which the councils’ work is based.

The call for applications is open from today via this form until Wednesday 19 April. The call is open for journalism students and journalists up to 30 years old (with a maximum of 5 years experience). The curriculum is available below.

One student or young professionals from each EU country will be invited to attend the master class that will take place in Brussels from Tuesday 30 May to Friday 2 June. Press councils from around the EU have been invited to nominate candidates for the class, which will be organised in Brussels and will last three days.

Candidates will be nominated at the national level by press councils and selected by the partners of this project; the European Federation of Journalists (EFJ)Raad voor de JournalistiekConseil de déontologie journalistique (CDJ) and the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB).

This is an effort by the EFJ, RAAD, CDJ and ULB, as part of the Media Councils in the Digital Age project.
