Politics and the Media: Foreign Policy, Public Opinion and the Press

Keith B. Richburg

Back to "Fall 2023" courses

This course will examine the interplay of politics, foreign policy and the press in the 2024 election cycle and in recent political history. American elections largely turn on domestic issues, but global concerns and perceived threats have played a role in almost every election from Vietnam to the "war on terror," and in trade and immigration. We will also explore media coverage and the political impact of current global issues including the war in Ukraine and the rise of China. Students will follow the 2024 campaign and global news to produce regular original dispatches, and will learn the craft of writing features, news analyses and op-eds.

If the course fills, you may email Margo Bresnen, Journalism Program Manager, at mbresnen@princeton.edu to be put on a waitlist. Please include a paragraph explaining your interest in the course.
