General description

This is a 5-credit course designed for both graduate students and undergraduate and exchange students. The major theories of media ethics from around the world are introduced, and applied to important cases and issues today.  All ethical theories are seeking to be global, and each contributes to the primary ethical principles for the media:  truth, human dignity, and non-violence. Approximately 15 pages of reading are required for each class. There are 3 short writing assignments and students will keep a diary of the lectures. A final essay of 2000 words is required based on the lectures and readings.
