About the course

This course provides the foundations of a broad understanding of the main theories, discourses and academic debates in Journalism Studies. The course also elaborates on the roles and challenges for journalism in a globalised and changing media environment. It is structured around four thematic areas: i. news production, ii. news content, iii. journalism and society, iv. contemporary trends in news media. The more general discussion of journalism studies is complemented by two smaller modules focused on the ethical dimension of journalism and on investigative journalism.
