International News: Migration Reporting

Deborah Amos

Back to "Fall 2024" courses

This seminar will focus on refugee crises and human rights issues at a time when migration becomes a key issue in the 2024 Presidential election. A series of day trips to Philadelphia, New York, and Washington D.C. will give students the opportunity to report from the field. The course will combine fundamentals of journalism and narrative reporting with historical studies and data and analysis of immigration policy and the prosecution of crimes against humanity. Students will investigate the impact of migration and universal jurisdiction while producing original reporting in various journalistic forms, including news, profiles and features.
