The Norwegian Institute of Journalism

The Norwegian Institute of Journalism was founded in 1975 to provide knowledge and resources for media practitioners. Their mission is to train and further educate journalists and editors, publishing textbooks on media and consulting for media organizations. Their staff of teachers, together with external lecturers, covers a wide field of journalistic competencies: press law and ethics; digital research and computer-assisted reporting; new media and convergence; language; writing skills; photo and layout; newsroom management and editorial coaching; evaluation and quality measurement; audience development and media trends.

The Institute was founded by the country’s principal media associations: The Norwegian Union of Journalists, (Norsk Journalistlag); The Association of Norwegian Editors (Norsk Redaktørforening ) and The Norwegian Newspaper Publishers Association (Mediebedriftenes Landsforening).
