About Certificate Programs

Certificates of proficiency are designed to measure your knowledge of essential skills or information. To receive a certificate, take the NewsU courses associated with that certificate program and then successfully complete the online assessment for each course. Once you've passed all the assessments, you will receive your certificate from Poynter's NewsU.

A certificate in "New Media Technology" shows that you have a solid foundation in the principles and values of multimedia journalism.

This program is available to students enrolled in New Media Technology (ENG 387) at Morehouse College. Please see your instructor for details on how to enroll at the student rate. Or you can choose to enroll in the Morehouse Digital Course Pack.

This certificate program is available until December 1, 2016. The assessments in this series of courses account for 15 percent of each student's overall grade in the New Media Technology, ENG 387.


To earn the certificate, you must pass the assessments for each of the courses prescribed in this program. Questions in each assessment will cover the content from the respective module, so we encourage you to work through each module carefully and thoroughly before taking the assessment. You will have three chances to pass each assessment, so you can always review the material again if you don't pass the first time.

Unlike traditional quizzes and activities from Poynter's NewsU, these assessments won't tell you the answers. You will simply get a score when you complete the assessment. So make sure you study hard when you take the courses.

Please remember: The assessments are based on the material in the modules.
