As web-based platforms increasingly dominate mass media, what specific forms should the "new" environmental journalism take? With the help of guests and timely readings, we will confront thorny questions about environmental advocacy, citizen media, issue framing, risk balancing and the scientific process.
This course introduces students to the basic structures and practices of media and their relationship to everyday social life focusing on the Pacific Rim.
At NYU Sydney, students will be able to explore Aboriginal art and culture of the longest continuous civilization on the planet. The curriculum will include courses on Australia's rich history of immigrant communities that formed this continent-sized nation with unique and compelling characteristics as well as courses in environmental studies, history, journalism, literature, and media and communication. Faculty-led study trips to remote regions and communities that cannot be visited by casual tourists will be an essential part of the program. NYU Sydney will provide students with credit-bearing internship opportunities with local media establishments, and other businesses.
