Explore international journalism — its current reality and future impact — in an increasingly dynamic world and a rapidly changing media landscape.

The world is an increasingly connected place. Traditional and social media provide a window into the daily lives of others, allowing us to build communities irrespective of borders and history. As we build our own communities, the global balance of power has shifted, and governments fight for local, regional and global dominance.

In this course, students explore how journalists cover foreign communities, events, and issues and what they hope to achieve with the coverage. Participants will also consider how international journalism is evolving in response to a rapidly-changing media landscape and what this means for news consumers as well as those who aspire to careers in the field.
