In Spring Semester 2018, Liberal Arts in London students will have the option to take Media in the United Kingdom. This course has been previously taught during the Journalism in London summer program but will be expanded for the semester program and taught by a local faculty.
The course is designed to introduce students to the particularities of the British media market and the unique character of British journalism. Along the way, students will explore some of Britain’s journalistic traditions, from the respectability of the BBC to the scurrilous tabloid press. The course will examine some of the critical academic reaction to these institutions and the role and practice of journalism in Britain today. Students are encouraged to compare and contrast the British media to that of the USA. Excursions will be worked into the timetable where possible.
