The long tradition of the chronicle and its development in our days has shown that it is a genre that has the tools to narrate and that allows the reconstruction of various conflictive, contradictory realities, full of nuances, and multiple meanings of the contemporary. For this, it is necessary to develop a specific academic field, which is the one proposed by this master's degree in Narrative Journalism. To well-done journalism that appeals to accurate and rigorous information and context, the new narrative journalism adds the conceptual depth to achieve a direct, empathetic arrival and shocking readers saturated by the overabundance of information they receive not only through the traditional media but also through social networks and the multiple channels of digital circulation.

In this historical framework, it is necessary, on the one hand, to rediscover the chronicle through a conscious reading of its tradition, as did academics such as Ángel Rama, Julio Ramos, Susana Rotker, or María Moreno, who took the chronicle out of the drawer of minor and bastard genres, displaced by their status as "journalistic" from the canonical readings of the 19th and 20th centuries. And, at the same time, critically revisit the realistic literature - not only the North American one - to account for those narrative fabrics that left a record of what the world that its authors lived was like and how it is possible to unfold the complexity of the social.

Professionals who study this master's degree will be able to learn from the long tradition of chronicles to de-fossilize formats, formulas and generate stories that avoid common places and can account for the universal from specific stories. Through the curriculum that will provide different types of technical and conceptual tools - from social theory to literature - they will be able to cross, in a constant round trip, the invisible borders that separate journalism from multiple knowledge. Expanding globalization, crisis, conflicts, and social contradictions, in a context of growing inequality, the emergence of new demands and claims for new rights, social subjects, and collective organizations that renew political agendas,
