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.
Looking for guidance for your journalism startup? We have gathered lessons and advice from journalism entrepreneurs and experts to provide you comprehensive training on the mechanics behind building a business.
The interactive courses and on-demand video replays in this series will show you the ropes, point you to the right resources and help you formulate the questions you most need answers to. When you're done, you will have a solid understanding of what it takes to build a successful entrepreneurial business, from idea to operation to making a profit.
To earn the certificate, you must pass the assessments for each of the courses in this program. Questions in each assessment will cover the content from the course, so we encourage you to work through each course before you take the assessment. You'll 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. So make sure you study hard when you take the courses.
