The Postgraduate Course in Content Creation and New Digital Narratives provides you with the most advanced knowledge, resources, and information in the field of digital narrative design and production. It will allow you to exercise some of the most demanding new professions today at the highest level: show runner, digital communicator, transmedia architect, influencer, scriptwriter of fiction and non-fiction projects, storyteller, community manager, designer of interactive experiences, or digital creator.

The postgraduate course addresses the essential contents of this new professional field, which continues to grow thanks to the exponential development of digital platforms and social networks. Throughout the course you will be trained in the most effective techniques for storytelling, single or serial, and through practical classes you will learn to design channels, profiles, videos, and stories to stand out on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, and other content dissemination platforms. The program has the involvement of some of the most prominent writers, screenwriters, and digital creators in Spain and Latin America.

The program is taught by teachers who are the most important creators and digital managers in Latin America, such as Hernán Casciari, Sheila Blanco, Manuel Bartual, Javier Olivares, Verónica Ruiz del Vizo, Emma Rodero, María Jesús Espinosa de los Monteros, Diego Enrique Osorno, or Xavi Robles.

If at the end of the program you are interested in continuing your training in creative writing techniques, you will be able to validate 12 credits for the Master in Literary Creation.

Methodology

The postgraduate sessions have an eminently practical approach and are oriented towards active learning and stimulation of the student's creativity. Master classes will be combined with debates, workshops, and group projects. In addition to the teachers, there will be sessions with prestigious guests, all of whom have extensive experience in creating digital content and designing narrative experiences.

01.

Practical sessions

The postgraduate sessions are all of a practical nature, so that the student learns through constant exercises that help stimulate their own creativity in order to obtain the best results.

02.

Show and tell

The classrooms at UPF-BSM have the necessary technology for the "show and tell" of innovative reference projects, in order to guide the student to work independently with their own tools and devices.

03.

Group projects

Teamwork and networking among students will be encouraged to the maximum, with the aim of promoting creative co-creation as much as possible.

04.

Expert guests

Guests connected to the world of new digital narratives will share their experience and vision. We have the support of content producers such as Mediapro, Storytel, Serialify, Polford Studios, Podimo, Podium Podcast, Minoria Absoluta, and Revista Mongolia.

Evaluation

Evaluation will be continuous, with practical work in all the subjects. It will also include the development of a final project, a channel project, series, podcast, advertising campaign, digital or transmedia story, strategy for social networks, or similar.

Tools

The combination of online learning and face-to-face sessions favours the balance between theory and practice in a flexible learning process. The various multimedia resources that are made available to the student allow them to acquire knowledge in a self-regulated manner and the face-to-face sessions seek to put them into practice with active methodologies.

You will have:

  • Digital resources and audiovisual blocks for online learning
  • Face-to-face sessions with active methodologies for transferable learning
  • Master's or postgraduate work to learn by doing
  • A personal mentor to monitor your Master's Final Project (TFM) or Postgraduate Final Project (TFP)
