Every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the information contained in this Columbia College Chicago Catalog; however, the Catalog is not a contract but rather a guide for the convenience of students. Columbia College Chicago reserves the right to change or withdraw courses; to change the fees, rules, and calendar for admission, registration, instruction, and graduation; and to change any of its policies or other provisions listed in the Catalog at any time.
Course is a practical guide to covering international stories from here and abroad. Students will analyze issues of importance in Asia, the Middle East, Africa, the Americans and Europe. In exploring reporting strategies for print and broadcast, students will learn to include historical perspective and provide social, economic, political, and cultural context; they will also learn to look for the human element and downplay crisis-oriented coverage.
