Journalism Combined with Computer Science

  • Alina is from Cupertino, California, where many high-tech companies are located. She chose USC because she is interested in journalism and computer science, and USC can combine them.
  • Her favorite type of journalism is Podcast, as it’s interesting to tell stories in audio. It’s also very convenient because people can listen to it everywhere at any time.
  • She developed a website about The Making of a Modern Trojan for Daily Trojan. It’s not an easy job because she is the only technical person in her team and need to solve all problems on her own.
  • Alina showed me a project called Inside Jobs, which presents people’s thoughts about their jobs. She thinks computer science can help journalism becomes more interesting and vivid. Also, she says that people always have new things to learn in computer science.
