International Journalism

JOURNAL 310

This course employs a social scientific lens to examining the challenges and issues facing journalists covering global affairs. The class is structured around three overarching areas: (1) canonical theories for understanding impacts on and of journalism; (2) journalistic cultures and transnational issues; and (3) journalistic routines and practices. Each of these areas is applied to the context of international journalism, highlighting what is distinct (and not so different) about bringing the world home. Students will also learn about how to empirically evaluate different aspects of international journalism through the use of social scientific tools. (Gen.Ed. SB, DG)
