The Brown Institute is part of a larger effort at the journalism school to advance its digital programs. In 2010, the school launched its Tow Center for Digital Journalism, partly to expand the training that the school provides to all its students in video, audio, and other multimedia reporting tools. This past fall, the J-school, in conjunction with Columbia’s own engineering school, launched a dual master’s degree program in journalism and computer science.

“Our programs with these two engineering schools will be complementary, given their emphasis on different stages of a journalist’s education,” says Lemann. “We imagine that the graduates of our new master’s degree program with Columbia’s engineering school, for instance, will be among those applying to the Brown Institute.”
