The UPF Barcelona School of Management’s Postgraduate Course in New Digital Storytelling will provide you with the knowledge, resources and most up-to-date information on the field of design and development of digital storytelling, allowing you to make headway in some of the most in-demand fields such as those of show runner, digital communicator, transmedia architect, influencer, fictional and non-fictional project scriptwriter, community manager, interactive experience designer, digital creator and storyteller itself.

The program encompasses the key contents of this new professional field, currently experiencing exponential growth thanks to the boom in digital platforms and social media. Throughout the course, you will learn about the most effective storytelling techniques, whether self-contained or serial, and by means of practical classes which will allow you to design channels, profiles, videos and stories to stand out on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok and other social platforms. The program features input from some of Spain and Latin America’s leading writers, scriptwriters and digital creators.

Our Postgraduate Course in New Digital Storytelling is targeted at graduates in humanities, journalism, communication, marketing, advertising, graphic design and fine arts. It is also aimed at digital creators, professional storytellers, scriptwriters and writers, aspiring influencers, and more generally speaking, professionals in the field of communication, marketing and advertising who wish to update their knowledge.

Participants to have completed the program interested in continuing their education in creative writing techniques may transfer 12 credits from the course onto our Master in Literary Creation.
