GOVT141 CM - The Politics and Craft of International Journalism

Journalism not only records history and world events but shapes them as well. Urgent breaking news, daily wrap-ups and thoughtful analyses impact global understanding and policy, and provide an early framework for the historical record. This course presents the fundamentals of news reporting, sourcing and writing, and applies them to assignments the media face every day overseas: spot news and briefs, daily stories on deadline, feature writing, and reporting on political, business, diplomatic, military, social, cultural, sports and other subjects. Students will train to interpret international events and present them in professional journalistic formats.
