The Challenges Covering an Increasingly Diverse Multicultural Nation

Back to "Fall 2024" courses

Public trust in the media and journalists continues to plummet. That is especially true in minority communities that critics say are too often ignored. Where residents say they see too many negative depictions of people who look like them if they see anyone at all. Beyond that, according to polls, most journalists say their newsrooms still lack staffing and editorial diversity, especially along ethnic and racial lines. This course will examine why and how the media struggles to cover the issues and concerns of significant portions of the population in an increasingly diverse country.
