  • Journalism

    Journalism provides a background in reporting, from interviewing to on-line records searches, and in writing, from deadline news stories to longer analytical and feature pieces. Democracy depends on the ethical practice of journalism. The new journalist must know how to communicate across platforms, across audiences, and with fact-checked precision. They must understand, adapt to and be able to leverage new economic models to sustain and grow journalism. Journalists must adhere strictly to the highest ethical principles and practices.
