The high and rising cost of college is one thing, but this is positively stunning.

The Cost Of A One Year Master’s In Data Journalism At Columbia Is … $150K

A new one-year data journalism master’s degree offered by Columbia University costs $150,000.

Prospective students will need to pay approximately $106,000 for tuition and fees and $41,232 for living expenses, reported Inside Higher Ed. The median income for American journalists in 2016 was less than $40,000 a year, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Students who obtain the degree will receive “practical, hands-on training essential to producing deeply reported data-driven stories in the public interest,” according to a Columbia news release. The school states that the program will train students to better collect and synthesize data, as well as implement algorithms to “access capabilities and biases in data.”
