International Journalism: South Africa

Taught by Doug Foster and Ava Greenwell

South Africa’s history and contemporary social upheavals makes it a rich environment for considering the role of media, business, politics and public health in an emerging democracy. Just 25 years since the end of Apartheid, an extreme form of racial segregation and oppression, the country is in swift transition culturally, politically, and economically. This course offers a special focus on the country's newspapers, magazines, and broadcast outlets and is designed for any student interested in international reporting and/or health reporting.
