Program Description:

APG5190: Global Journalism


What does it take to get a job in journalism in Asia? And why are Hong Kong and Singapore so vital to the global news industry? In this unit, students will travel to these two media capitals to explore why these cities are such a big draw for global news companies, and get the chance to visit some of world's most prestigious news publishers, broadcasters and agencies. At each site, students will meet with journalists and editors to discuss issues including:
  • How is journalism practiced here?
  • What are the differences between Asian and international news outlets in coverage of regional and global affairs?
  • What journalistic models thrive here amid technological, industrial and social change?
  • Why have global news companies made Hong Kong and Singapore a ‘home away from home’?
Students will draw from research literature, their immersive field-school experience and on-site interviews to complete various practical and research journalism tasks. This will include field reporting and photography
