International Journalism

This minor will help you develop a solid base in the knowledge, research and practical skills required for today's journalism. And these skills will be put to use on a variety of media platforms. Are you a media junkie? Do you have opinions about what is going on in the world? If this is you, then the minor International Journalism is for you.

Would you like to explore and participate in the dynamic and daily-changing fields of International Journalism? Interview a family of asylum-seekers facing deportation from the Netherlands? Mingle with ministers on a field trip to Brussels or London? Report from Istanbul for a week? Make a webcast about the growing power of Bollywood on the worldwide entertainment scene? These are the kinds of things you'll be doing in the minor ‘International Journalism’. 

In the classroom, you'll work on your English (online) writing skills (news articles and essays), as well as photographing, video and audio. You'll analyze the techniques and influence of CNN, RT, Al Jazeera, the BBC and you'll be trying to understand today's conflicts; how they are (mis)represented on the many stages of world-wide media. Subjects range from politics to society to culture, gentrification, economics, media and more. This minor aims to connect the global to the local, and the local to the global, and find dynamic forms for the practice of 21st century journalism.
