Program Description:

APG5190: Global Journalism


What does it take to get a job in journalism in Asia – and why is Hong Kong so vital to the global news industry?
In this unit, students will travel to the Asian media capital to explore why this world city is the big draw for news companies from around the globe. Students will travel to Hong Kong and the habour-front news hub of Wan Chai to visit some of the world’s most prestigious publishers and agencies.
At each site, students will meet with media practitioners to discuss core issues. Students will draw from research literature, their immersive field-school experience and on-site press conferences to complete their own feature article on a key issue relating to news practice, news culture and/or news coverage in Hong Kong.
