Description: STUDY ABROAD CAPA IN LONDON ONLY. This course will address the principal ethical issues facing print and broadcast journalism. It will consider the practical dilemmas reporters and editors have to deal with and relate them to a moral framework. The focus will be on the real time arguments that arise almost daily in media coverage of matters of public controversy - crime, war, privacy and the like. The course objectives are to learn how to evaluate the performance of the media and to help students develop their own ethical philosophy. Problems of regulation and codes of practice will also be examined. Students will be able to take advantage of London's global importance as a media hub and the distinctive media culture of the UK through a program of case studies, visits and guest lectures by practitioners.
