International News: Migration Reporting

Deborah Amos

Back to "Fall 2017" courses

This seminar will focus on journalism and the global migration crisis, as more than 65 million people are on the move, with forced displacements at a record high. At the same time, refugee resettlement in the United States is contentious. We will examine journalism’s approach to the crisis in photos, text, and radio, considering the conflict between national security, international responsibility, and America’s historic role in resettlement. Students will visit ethnic and refugee communities, write stories on topics as diverse as social media, education, and entrepreneurship, and produce multimedia assignments and a long-form final project.
