The program is designed to equip students with a set of knowledge and skills so that they can work successfully in the ever-changing media landscape. The lessons are taught by the SOOC photojournalists, who are some of the most prominent professionals in the field.
Teaching focuses on contemporary approaches to visual journalism, critical thinking, research, storytelling strategies, editing images, writing proper text and captions, and the social role of photography. Students are trained under real-world reporting conditions, will have unique access to Parliament’s plenary sessions, and will cover major political events and events of the day. Upon completion of the program, students will have acquired the theoretical and technical foundations required for a career in reportage and photo-documentary, having additionally created a personal portrait with a strong narrative structure that can be used professionally.
The program is completed in 25 courses of a total duration of 90 hours. The lessons will be held every Friday afternoon at the school, except for the external sessions, which will be announced once the political calendar has been finalized. For the registration the necessary prerequisite is the presentation of the indicative work of the interested person.
