    Journalism & New Media

    Thamina Stoll, a 2017 Duke graduate, completed the Policy Journalism and Media Studies Certificate Program. While at Duke, she ran and curated the official Duke University Instagram account which has more than 65k followers. She also live-covered Duke's NCAA Division I football and basketball games from official Duke University social media accounts. After graduation Thamina ran the Sanford School of Public Policy's social channels for a year, and then took her journalism and new media skills to LinkedIn.

Sponsored by the Center for Child and Family Policy, the Child Policy Research Certificate Program builds students’ knowledge of child and family issues, while also providing the necessary academic tools for students to engage in research that informs policy and practice. Drawing on child and family-related courses taught in other departments, including Psychology, Public Policy, Sociology, Economics, and Education, the certificate offers an interdisciplinary look at the issues shaping today’s children and adolescents.

The Policy Journalism and Media Studies Certificate

The DeWitt Wallace Center for Media and Democracy, part of Duke's Sanford School of Public Policy, offers this certificate. As global communications undergoes a period of rapid and profound change, this certificate is designed for students interested in preparing for careers in media policy, journalism, or any of the associated professions.
