This course is designed to increase students use of English in the profession of journalism. It accomplishes this task through the use of authentic, English language media (texts, videos, podcasts), classroom discussion, written assignments and a final exam. The course covers the following topics: social media and the new demands placed on journalists, the tension between media independence and media ownership, the dangers and perils of investigative journalism, how to investigate conspiracy theories, and how to conduct an interview. The course requires students to produce texts that accompany or deal with each topic. Each assignment is introduced with a lesson on how to produce well structured and engaging texts in English. Throughout the course the rules of English grammar are reviewed.
