Course Description

What is it like to work as a foreign correspondent? How do journalists across the globe operate, what challenges do they face, and how does their work shape our understanding of today’s world?

This course, taught by a veteran reporter, will use some of the best works of contemporary journalism to explore the craft of international reporting and the changing nature of the global media industry. We’ll study the work of both Western and non-Western journalists, including print, radio, and television reporters, war correspondents, travel writers, photographers, videographers, and documentary filmmakers. We’ll delve into the risks posed by hostile governments, examine how the internet and social media have upended business models, and discuss how the global media’s ongoing evolution impacts what we see and hear about the world around us. Along the way, we’ll gain a knack for the reporting process by taking a critical eye to others’ work and completing our own journalistic assignments.
